All of these features, taken together, gave such great benefits, what about 2-1. 5 million years ago began a rapid resettlement of those progressive forms in Africa, the Mediterranean, South, Central and Southeast Asia. Settling and getting into new conditions of existence, they formed separate isolated forms. To date (the end of the 60-ies of XX century) there are about a dozen of these fossil forms (presented in the form of residues from many tens, if not hundreds, of individuals), occupying many of the essential features intermediate between modern man, on the one hand, and Australopithecines on the other.
