Bah und humbug! here's what it comes down to:
1. Odds are, humans are going to wipe themselves out before we evolve, either by hook (nuclear/biological/chemical war) or by crook (pollution or our
excessively poor breeding habits).
2. should we NOT render ourselves extinct, we will be either so bloodied from fighting ourselves, or will be on your disapora throughout space, which
makes for a whole new kettle of fish.
3. There are tons of animals/insects which could take our place if we fell. Some people predict mammoth jellyfish. others, cockroaches. Your question
is a little open, but if humans were to vanish right now, my guess would be wolves would be the dominant land species. in the water, it's
questionable since we don';t know what's out there. It depends where you go, but maybe whales or dolphins would make a comeback.
