Optimal Ancient DNA Yields from the Inner Ear Part of the Human Petrous Bone
It is confirmed that dense bone parts of the petrous bone can provide high endogenous aDNA yields and indicate that endogenous DNA fractions for part C can exceed those obtained for part B by up to 65-fold and those from part A byUp to 177-fold, while total endogenous DNA concentrations are up to 126- fold and 109-fold higher for these comparisons.
Increasing the resolution of the Broad Spectrum Revolution in the Southern Levantine Epipaleolithic (19-12 ka).
Levantine cranium from Manot Cave (Israel) foreshadows the first European modern humans
Manot 1 is the only modern human specimen to provide evidence that during the Middle to Upper Palaeolithic interface, both modern humans and Neanderthal contemporaneously inhabited the southern Levant, close in time to the likely interbreeding event with Neanderthals.

Dzudzuana: an Upper Palaeolithic cave site in the Caucasus foothills (Georgia)
The report announces the important radiocarbon-dated sequence recently obtained at Dzudzuana Cave in the southern Caucasus foothills. The first occupants here were modern humans, in c. 34.5–32.2 ka…
Ancient goat genomes reveal mosaic domestication in the Fertile Crescent
It is demonstrated that multiple divergent ancient wild goat sources were domesticated in a dispersed process that resulted in genetically and geographically distinct Neolithic goat populations, echoing contemporaneous human divergence across the region.
Distribution and Extinction of Ungulates during the Holocene of the Southern Levant
A negative relationship was found between the average body mass of ungulate species that became extinct during the Holocene and their extinction date, suggesting that the intensified human activity through habitat destruction and uncontrolled hunting were responsible for the two major waves ofUngulate extinction in the southern Levant during the late Holocene.
