    What do you say? Are there any species that originated after humans? If yes, What does it imply?

    Yes. https://blogs.scientificamerican.com...-observations/

    It implies nothing except that these processes continue, as one would expect that they would.

    There are multitudes, and there is no surprise regarding it. A large number emerged after the last ice age (long after H. sapiens) and others emerged with the creation or changes in lakes of the African rift valley.

    What do you feel the significance should be? And why do you feel that there wouldn't be any species after the evolution of H. sapiens?

    At present, I am still concentrating on exchemist's post. I did a fast read this morning but need to do it again. All new to me. Your question is a good one but is one I'd never thought of. I need to absorb all of this. OK?

    All right - before my day gets too busy - what do I think? I think this certainly adds credence to the theory of evolution. Knowing a tiny bit about biology, I've never had a problem with the theory but it is good to read reports as seen through the eyes of the scientists who have "been there; seen that". If I can't watch it happening myself, I want to hear about it from professionals who are watching and know how to report in a way that everyone can understand. Whether each of us believes is a personal matter that I don't get into. But the logic of it seems to work.

    I remember the story of the moths in England who were changing color to match the tree they had shifted to. It was given as a device used for protection against "enemy" who would attack them. Now we get a more full story. I also like the way it weaves in the history of evolution. That adds a spark of life to the story. It is a well-written report. I'm very glad to have seen it.

    I do not know what else to say except to repeat myself by saying I am glad you asked the question because it wakened me to more thought about this process. And I am glad exchemist was there with a fast answer. Now I shall pay more attention. Thank you both.
