Homo floresiensis, nicknamed "hobbit" for its 3.5-foot stature, dates back to this time. It's believed that Homo floresiensis is a kind of dwarfed Homo erectus, although wrist bones appear more primitive than H. erectus. It's believed that they underwent an evolutionary process called island dwarfism that is also known in other species. They adapt to the limited resources of an island through natural selection.
