@farmerman,
Thanks for the chart. I didn't realize the Gibbons were out of the club. (I've always enjoyed watching their gymnastics routines) I'd better get to reading!

@TomTomBinks,
I am not a monkey guy(I only play one on tv). So remember, anything on Wikipedia is wholly suspect.
I do know that Sivapithecus a "last" common ancestor of all the great apes, left Gibbons out of the mix. However, it appears that the gibbons just fit on a separate off line. The orang line diverges off the Sivapithecus line shortly thereafter so orangs re NOT on the final 3 line and ,technically, dont bunch in with either chimps bonobos, gorillas , and
people from West Virginia.

OK, so do we now say there are seven species of ape? Or still five?

Or are we counted here as a great ape? Or is it five hominoids; four apes and one Human?
Does the Bonobo count as a separate species?
I guess I'm confused. It's been many years since anthropology class!

@Pamela Rosa,
the neat thing about many branches of science, no matter what seems "settled" Therell always be a coupla respected folks who want to argue against the contract of settlement.

Hawks doesnt like "Hominin" and wants to "split" the great ape classification into further and further smaller clades.

Just remember there is really no right or wrong in classification unless there is strong evidence that disrupts the "Great Ape" clade descendants of the common ancestor of the great apes Sivepithecus during the Miocene(about 20 my ago).However the split from bonobo or chimps (Im still not convinced about the clarity of these lines and whether both humans AND bonobos split from chimps about 6 my
