Here is a quotation from a paper written in 1994 by milford wolpoff and four other prominent advocates of the model at that time [10 x multiregional evolution: a world-wide source for modern human populations. Contrary to the claims of a recent study, the multiregional model, which states that modern humans evolved from several different groups of hominids (including neanderthals) that interbred at some point to produce modern humans, fails to explain the genetics seen in modern humans, neanderthals, and early modern humans. Multiregionalism or the multiregional evolution (mre) hypothesis is a model of pleistocene human evolution, which argues the human species emerged in africa 2 million years ago, and developed their modern forms in every area of the old world.

Fact that multiregional evolution is a hypothesis about the pat- tern of human evolution, and not speciﬁcally about modern hu- man origins (if there is such an event see wolpoff and caspari. Since the early 1980's, there have been two leading contradictory models that attempt to explain modern human evolution--the multiregional model and the out of africa model both theories are discussed in detail on pp 309-310 and 339-340.
The multiregional continuity model, proposed by milford wolpoff, suggests that modern homo sapiens evolved from archaic humans throughout europe, asia, and africa substantial gene flow occurred on the borders of each of the regions, accounting for the physical similarities of anatomically modern humans in each area. The assimilation model (am) is a hypothesis of human evolution proposed by the anthropologist fred h smith in 1989 as an intermediate model between the recent african origin hypothesis (rao) and multiregional hypothesis (mre. This lesson will seek to explain the partial replacement model of human origin in doing so, it will also explain the replacement model, the work of charles darwin, and the concept of theory. The multiregional model of modern human origins predicts that a group of features, recognized as characterizing the evolution of regional populations from their archaic regional ancestors, will consistently show higher incidence in those regions. Multi-regional continuity: the fossil evidence with regards to the multi-regional continuity model of human evolution, there is without a doubt a preponderance of fossil data that supports the diverse origins of homo sapiens in different regions of the globe.
The argument for a multiregional theory of human evolution was first proposed by franz weidenreich and is based on his analysis of the peking man (foley) the peking man refers to the findings of homo erectus which were discovered in china between the years 1923 to 1927 (schmalzer. The multiregional continuity model 15 contends that after homo erectus left africa and dispersed into other portions of the old world, regional populations slowly evolved into modern humans. The 'out of africa' model of human evolution has basically proved to be empirically sound, and the field is now (at last) moving on on the other hand, erik trinkaus, on a recent article on modern human emergence seems to reject the pure out of africa model as well as the regional continuity model.

Multiregional origin of modern humans explained the multiregional hypothesis, multiregional evolution (mre), or polycentric hypothesis is a scientific model that provides an alternative explanation to the more widely accepted out of africa model of monogenesis for the pattern of human evolution. Under the recent variants of the multiregional model of human evolution, modern and archaic forms were different but related populations within a single evolving species, and both have contributed to the gene pool of current humans. Out of africa theory the out of africa theory is a widely renown theory describing the origin of the human race and their early dispersal throughout the world according to this theory, humans have a monogensis, or a single and common origin africa. Under this model, the modern human form arose autonomously at multiple times and locations worldwide within the last 1 million years, so that modern non-african populations each primarily descended from separate evolutions of these homo species 5 this is in contrast to the traditionally proposed multiregional model, which importantly does not.
The multiregional origin hypothesis of human species holds that some, or all, of the genetic variation between the contemporary human races is attributable to genetic inheritance from either homo. The fossil record is the real evidence for human evolution, and it is rich in both human remains and archaeological sites stretching back for a million years unlike the genetic data, fossils can be matched to the predictions of theories about the past without relying on a long list of assumptions. The multiregional model suggests that homo sapiens didn't evolve at a specific time or place, instead they slowly evolved from homo erectus (right) an ancestor of the modern human, that lived between 800,000 and 18million years ago, all over the world.

Ofhumanevolution: multiregional continuity andgenetic markerfission-replacement in considering these two models it is critical to distinguish among the data, the assumptions of the interpretive framework within which the data are ordered, the. Multiregional origin of modern humans, multiregionalism, or multiregional hypothesis refer to theories according to which the modern humans originated from several different archaic human groups who lived in different regions.
