  Hominidae - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The hominids are the members of the biological family Hominidae (the great apes), which includes humans, chimpanzees, gorillas, and orangutans.
Thus many biologists consider Hominidae to include Pongidae as the subfamily Ponginae, or restrict the latter to the orangutan and extinct relatives like Gigantopithecus.
Its age suggests there was an initial split between the two species, followed by gradual divergence and interbreeding that resulted in younger genes, and then a final separation.

 Hominid
The Hominids (Hominidae) are a biological family which includes humans, extinct species of humanlike creatures and now often the great apes: chimpanzees and bonobos (genus Pan), gorillas, and orangutans (genus Pongo)).
Originally the group was restricted to humans and their extinct relatives, with great apes being placed in a separate family, the Pongidae.
Thus many biologists consider Hominidae to include the Pongidae, or restrict the latter to the orangutan and extinct relatives like Gigantopithecus.

Hominidae was a very resourceful creature, making super-efficient tools, living in habitats, learning proper health, and during this period of trial and tribulation, they met things they could not defeat, and they began to create religions and death cults, which were based on their experiences with dying loved ones.
The evolved pro-simian hominidae, builds a structured way of life to relieve their burdens and begins to teach his offspring ways and means, and survivalist tactics.
The hominidae civilizations however, were so near to perfect, that living traces, of the earliest groups, still existed in the jungles and forests at the beginning of the last century.

The main criterion for placing fossil forms in the family Hominidae is in practice the presence of accompanying stone implements.
The main diagnostic distinction of the Hominidae is the presence of those formations in the structure of the brain which makes speech possible and the correlative features in the face (Porshnev 1971).

 Hominid - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Hominid is any member of the biological family Hominidae (the "great apes"), including humans, chimpanzees, gorillas, and orangutans.
The primatological term is easily confused with a number of very similar words:
A hominid is a member of the family Hominidae: all of the great apes.

 Descent of Man
Here we will employ Hominidae to describe the apes and consider Pongidae to be a subset of Hominidae, and one which is a valid clade only so long as humans are considered also to be members of Pongidae.
The dawn of Hominidae thus is thought to have coincided with both the opening of the Rift Valley and an associated drying across the Hominidae range, i.e., environmental change combined with geographical isolation.
By this reckoning, Hominidae diverged morphological from chimpanzee at first and at least in part in the course of adaptation to a new, drier environment.

 How closely related are humans to apes and other animals? [Free Republic]
If we continue farther back in time, we find that placental mammals are between 60 and 80 million years old and that the oldest four-limbed animal, or tetrapod, lived between 300 and 350 million years ago and the earliest chordates (animals with a notochord) appeared about 990 million years ago.
Hominidae is the family to which homo sapiens (that's us) belongs.
In the past, however, there were other species within the family hominidae such as australopithecines, other homo species, and the older kenyapithecines.

All living members of the Hylobatidae and Hominidae are tailless, and humans can therefore accurately be referred to as bipedal apes.
Until about 1960 the hominoids were usually divided into two families: humans and their extinct relatives in Hominidae, the other apes in Pongidae.
This led to the placing of the other great apes into the family Hominidae along with humans, by demoting the Pongidae to a subfamily; the Hominidae family now contained the subfamilies Homininae and Ponginae.

It will function as both a descriptor and a check tag and will be indented under HOMINIDAE in the MeSH hierarchy, which, in turn, is indented under Animals.
A check tag is used for online searching in the same way as a descriptor, but a check tag like Human is never considered to be the main (or major) point of an article.
The "Hominidae"[MeSH Terms] portion of the translated search (which came from the UMLS mapping) will be omitted because the MeSH children of Hominidae for 2005 will include gorillas, orangutans, and chimpanzees as well as humans.

This means that pongidae is not monophyletic, which suggests to me that our current taxononmic terminology is a hang over from times when humans were thought to be so exceptionally unique that they should rate their own family.
I think taxonomy would reflect our improved understanding of evolutionary relationships much better if hominidae was included within pongidae -- which would mean that there was no such thing as a pongidae/hominidae split.
Now consider the evolutionary tree, given that it is now accepted that orangutangs split from humans/chimps/gorrillas before that part of the bush diverged into the modern species.

 Early Pleistocene Hominids-China   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Early Pliocene hominoids from the Yuanmou basin of Yunnan, for instance, have been described as having small distolingually elongated P4's, and low crowned molars, lacking in cingula, with broad talonids and squarish outlines (Lu 1991), all features similar to those seen in the Longgupo specimen.
Chinese advocates of an Asian origin for the Hominidae (humans and their direct ancestors) emphasize these hominid-like dental features of Late Tertiary southern Chinese apes.
If the Longgupo specimens are accepted as representing a true hominid then it follows that the hypothesis of a southern Chinese origin for the Hominidae merits serious consideration.
