1) Lumpers are used to classify objects with similarities in the same category. On the other hand, splitters are used to classify objects in different, more complex categories. Regarding Homo Habilis and Homo Erectus, splitters should classify that these are two different species. Homo Habilis is one of the oldest species of the genus Homo, living approximately 1.7-2.4 million years ago. These species have smaller teeth and a larger brain. Homo Erectus is a species of the humid, which is now extinct. Fossil records show that these species lived approximately 70,000-1.9 million years ago. Homo Erectus have an upright human-type body, large skull, and large brain size.
2)A lumper is an anthropologist who combines all similar species into the same genus and species name. A splitter an anthropologist who splits up most species when they show a certain level of differences. Homo Habilis and Homo Erectus should be classified that these are two different species by splitters. Homo Habilis is one of the oldest species of the genus Homo, living approximately 1.7-2.4 million years ago and had smaller teeth and a larger brain. Where as Homo Erectus, who lived between 1.8 million to 200,00 years ago, walked upright, had a rounded skull, a steeper face, smaller teeth and a greater cranial capacity.
