Supercomputer simulations reveal possible cause of Neanderthal extinction

Supercomputer simulations reveal possible cause of Neanderthal extinction Climate scientists from the IBS Center for Climate Physics discover that, contrary to previously held beliefs, Neanderthal extinction was neither caused by abrupt glacial climate shifts, nor by interbreeding with Homo sapiens. According to new supercomputer model simulations, only competition between Neanderthals and Homo sapiens can explain the rapid demise of Neanderthals around 43 to 38 thousand years ago. Neanderthals lived in Eurasia for at least 300,000 years. Then, around 43 to…
