The genetic history of Ice Age Europe
Modern humans arrived in Europe ~45,000 years ago, but little is known about their genetic composition before the start of farming ~8,500 years ago. We analyze genome-wide data from 51 Eurasians fromExpand

Early dispersal of modern humans in Europe and implications for Neanderthal behaviour
The appearance of anatomically modern humans in Europe and the nature of the transition from the Middle to Upper Palaeolithic are matters of intense debate. Most researchers accept that before theExpand

New fossils from Jebel Irhoud, Morocco and the pan-African origin of Homo sapiens
Fossil evidence points to an African origin of Homo sapiens from a group called either H. heidelbergensis or H. rhodesiensis. However, the exact place and time of emergence of H. sapiens remainExpand

Climate-related variation of the human nasal cavity.
The nasal cavity is essential for humidifying and warming the air before it reaches the sensitive lungs. Because humans inhabit environments that can be seen as extreme from the perspective ofExpand

Reconstructing the Deep Population History of Central and South America
Summary We report genome-wide ancient DNA from 49 individuals forming four parallel time transects in Belize, Brazil, the Central Andes, and the Southern Cone, each dating to at least ∼9,000 yearsExpand

Climate Signatures in the Morphological Differentiation of Worldwide Modern Human Populations
The ability of cranial morphology to reflect population/phylogenetic history, and the degree to which it might be influenced by environmental factors and selection pressures have been widelyExpand

Neanderthal behaviour, diet, and disease inferred from ancient DNA in dental calculus
Recent genomic data have revealed multiple interactions between Neanderthals and modern humans, but there is currently little genetic evidence regarding Neanderthal behaviour, diet, or disease. HereExpand

The Later Stone Age Calvaria from Iwo Eleru, Nigeria: Morphology and Chronology
Background In recent years the Later Stone Age has been redated to a much deeper time depth than previously thought. At the same time, human remains from this time period are scarce in Africa, andExpand

The Genomic History of Southeastern Europe
Farming was first introduced to Europe in the mid-seventh millennium bc, and was associated with migrants from Anatolia who settled in the southeast before spreading throughout Europe. Here, toExpand
