The out of Africa theory is that the homo-sapiens evolved in Africa and then displaced all other homo. The multiregional theoyr is that homo-sapiens simultaneously evolved at different areas all around the earth. The multiregional theory argues for interbreeding rather than homo-sapiens wiping out all other species.
