Possible Aquatic Adaptations in Human
According to the controversial idea(s) of "Waterside Evolution" (including the infamous "Aquatic Ape Hypothesis"), numerous features of human can be explained as adaptations to a semi-aquatic environm... ent, evolved over millions of years. With these adaptations, we are allowed to float, swim, dive and forage underwater, like how the sea gypsies, pearl divers, elite free-divers, and basically everybody still be able to do today.This infographic is a summary of these possible anatomical and physiological adaptations. Most of the points are still waiting to be verified, but recently there is a growing body of scientific evidence, e.g. human brain evolution related to shore-based diet, fossil and archaeological evidence of aquatic food consumption, diving physiology studies in sea gypsies, etc.See another hypothesis at http://visual.ly/possible-endurance-running-adaptations-human
