  Homo heidelbergensis
Many researchers argue that heidelbergensis is invalid, and is simply a chronospecies (though, that is exactly what some proponents argue for, among those who see anagenesis as a valid speciation event).
An increase in brain size (early Homo approximately 900 cc, heidelbergensis specimens approximately 1200cc).
heidelbergensis specimens are generally Middle Pleistocene hominids in Europe or Africa (though some specimens from Asia such as Dali have been designated to heidelbergensis by a few individuals), with the major difference from erectus being spatial.

 Homo Erectus
It is widely accepted that population similar to Homo erectus was directly ancestral to the earliest members of living species Homo sapiens.
Homo erectus as currently defined from Asia would be one species which became extinct in the last half million years.
The problem of defining Homo erectus is that it is viewed at present as a grade of human evolution intermediate between the small-brained early Pleistocene hominids and the large brained Homo sapiens.

 Human Ancestors Hall: Homo heidelbergensis
Homo heidelbergensis is the species name now given to a range of specimens from about 800,000 years ago to the appearance of anatomically modern Homo sapiens (the species to which we belong).
Additional finds of early humans with morphological attributes of both modern humans and Homo erectus have shown that the transition from early and middle Pleistocene forms and the morphology of modern humankind was not a neat transition that could be easily explained.
For this purpose, the Mauer mandible, and the species name Homo heidelbergensis has seniority.

Die-ses Ereignis wollen wir zusammen mit dem Verein „Homo heidelbergensis von Mauer e.V. gebührend feiern und damit einmal mehr den Focus der Öffentlichkeit auf den ältesten, mitteleuropäischen Urmenschenfund lenken, denn es ist geradezu ein Segen für unsere Gemeinde, der Fundort des Homo heidelbergensis zu sein.
Der Homo heidelbergensis gilt als der Vorfahre der Neandertaler in Europa und aus seinen afrikanischen Artgenossen wurden wir, die Modernen Menschen.

 Homo heidelbergensis   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
The "Mauer mandible", found in 1907 and dated at roughly 500,000 years old, combines primitive features (robusticity) with modern features (molar size), was given the species name Homo heidelbergensis in 1908.
Some major findings of this species may be located at Atapuerca in Northern Spain where one of the most spectacular dings of recent times was made.
The main noticable features of the fossils is the more prominent face and nose and the changes at the base of the skull which are perhaps thought to be associated with changes in the voice box.

 Homo heidelbergensis
Homo heidelbergensis was named only recently when several scientists proposed that the first colonizer of Europe, previously believed to be an "archaic" Homo sapiens, was actually a different species.
heidelbergensis argued that it was the ancestor of both Homo sapiens and the Neanderthals.
heidelbergensis lived can be best described as harboring "many species of large and small mammals, including shrews, shrews, voles, beavers, wild boar, fallow deer, roe, giant deer, bear, moose, horse, and an extinct species of rhinoceros.

 Homo heidelbergensis
The type specimen of European species: Homo heidelbergensis, the Mauer mandible, was found in 1907.
A denfinitive explanation for the implications of heidelbergensis, and where it fits into the evolutionary picture has yet to be totally determined, however, it is agreed upon that this specimen takes evolution one step closer to Homo sapiens.
Homo heidelbergensis is dated to between 400,000 and 100,000 years.
