The prevailing view was that material on all three continents was descended from H. The various geographic species distinctions for H. In this scenario, erectus -like forms on each of the continents slowly evolved into modern humans via gene flow between populations. This is in contrast to the Recent African Origin RAO model whereby modern humans evolved in Africa and moved out to eventually replace archaic forms elsewhere, e. The RAO model has gained in popularity due to a combination of the reevaluation of fossil material and especially DNA methods aimed at evaluating genetic distance between species, in terms of number of years since divergence from a common ancestor.
