Caption: Human evolution. Conceptual image depicting the stages in the evolution of humans. At lower centre is an amphibian creature rising from the water.

Clockwise from this are: proconsul (23-15 million years ago) depicted as an African ape with both primitive and advanced features; Australopithecus afarensis (4-2.5 million years ago) which displayed a bipedal, upright gait walking on two legs; Homo erectus (1.5 million years ago) used fire and wooden tools; and Homo sapiens or modern man who appeared 300,000-200,000 years ago).
