Can human evolution be called as Adaptive Radiation?

Answer- No, human evolution is not a radiation. Both terms refer to evolution.

Adaptive radiation creates new species from a single rapidly diverging lineage. Natural selects cause adaptive radiation. Adaptive radiation was discovered by Charles Robert Darwin. Darwins finches and the emergence of mammals following dinosaur extinction is the best illustration. Humans developed from apelike ancestors roughly five to six million years ago. Each milestone in human evolution has its own species. Human evolution is an agenesis.
