multiregional

  1. A form of evolution that takes place in a species with a very large geographic distribution but no distinct boundaries.
  2. The 20th century hypothesis that Homo sapiens descended from Homo erectus multiregionally throughout the entire Old World. Human evolution is and has been multiregional in the first sense, but not as once thought in the narrower second sense.
