      Competition, Not Climate Change, Led To Neanderthal Extinction, Study Shows

      ScienceDaily (Dec. 30, 2008) — In a recently conducted study, a multidisciplinary French-American research team with expertise in archaeology, past climates, and ecology reported that Neanderthal extinction was principally a result of competition with Cro-Magnon populations, rather than the consequences of climate change.The study, reported in the online, open-access journal PLoS ONE on December 24, figures in the ongoing debate on the reasons behind the eventual disappearance of Neanderthal populations, which occupied Europe prior to the arrival of human populations like us around 40,000 years ago. Led by Dr William E. Banks, the authors, who belong to the French Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique, l'Ecole Pratique d'Hautes Etudes, and the University of Kansas, reached their conclusion by reconstructing climatic conditions during this period and analyzing the distribution of archaeological sites associated with the last Neanderthals and the first modern human populations with an approach typically used to study the impact of climate change on biodiversity.

          Oh likely the truth is some sort of combination of the two.Remember that song in Kiss Me Kate..it goes" According to the Kinsey report, Every average man you know, Prefers to play his favorite sport, When the temperature is low!.. or maybe the Neanderthals developed a low sperm count when it got too  hot. And then the Homo Sapiens moved in on them and took over their territory.. who knows? Allison
