This chapter and the next will survey the disputes of evolutionary lineages and geography that continue all the way to Homo sapiens. �The debates and drama have two primary sources: the first is that humans are descendants from those lines and the second is that there has been a desire to demonstrate that humanity radically differs from its ancestors, possessed of unique traits, not only in degree, but in kind.� The debates seem to get fiercer the closer the primate line gets to modern humans. [430] Early primate migrations and extinctions led to a disjointed geographical distribution, as they could only live in tropical canopies.� When tropical forests shrank in the cooling conditions that led to the current ice age, primates such as tarsiers found themselves in isolated refugia.� In the late Eocene and late Miocene, when tropical canopies disappeared, the primate lines inhabiting them went extinct unless they used an escape route to a surviving tropical forest. � Although simians may have first appeared in Eocene Asia, when the late-Eocene cooling began, Africa became the primary primate refuge.� Around the early Oligocene, a splinter group migrated to South America from Africa and evolved in isolation for the next 30 million years.� Just as dinosaurs marginalized early mammals, simians marginalized prosimians, beginning in the Oligocene.� Today�s prosimians either live where simians do not, or where they coexist with simians, they are nocturnal.� Prosimians have simple social organization; most nocturnal prosimians lead solitary existences.� Lemurs living in daylight have societies of up to 20.� Monkeys have far more complex social organization than prosimians, and baboon societies number up to 250 individuals, although societies of about 50 are typical.� Ca puchins are considered the most intelligent New World monkeys, and their societies have between 10 and 40 members. �Studies of s imian societies have shown them engaging in crude versions of human politics, which have even been called Machiavellian, which has caused some to leap to Machiavelli�s defense.
