As a result, much of its flora and fauna are endemic or restricted to the island, with a relatively low genetic diversity. This phenomenon can rise to species that differ significantly from related species on the continent, the researchers argue—which explains why Homo luzonensis might look very different from its mainland hominin relatives. At least a dozen species in the genus Homo have been identified so far, of which Homo sapiens is the only survivor.
The exact number of early human species is a matter of debate, and has continued to expand over the years. Most recently, in , scientists announced that fossils found in China belonged to a previously unknown early human species, which they called the Red Deer Cave people.
