The phylogeography of Y chromosome binary haplotypes and the origins of modern human populations
A set of unique event polymorphisms associated with the non‐recombining portion of the Y‐chromosome (NRY) addresses this issue by providing evidence concerning successful migrations originating from Africa, which can be interpreted as subsequent colonizations, differentiations and migrations overlaid upon previous population ranges.
Developmental plasticity and human health
A fuller understanding of patterns of human plasticity in response to early nutrition and other environmental factors will have implications for the administration of public health.
An Aboriginal Australian Genome Reveals Separate Human Dispersals into Asia
It is shown that Aboriginal Australians are descendants of an early human dispersal into eastern Asia, possibly 62,000 to 75,000 years ago, which is separate from the one that gave rise to modern Asians 25, thousands of years ago.
Towards a theory of modern human origins: geography, demography, and diversity in recent human evolution.
It is argued that the Neanderthal and modern lineages share a common ancestor in an African population between 350,000 and 250,000 years ago rather than in the earlier Middle Pleistocene; this ancestral population, which developed mode 3 technology (Levallois/Middle Stone Age), dispersed across Africa and western Eurasia in a warmer period prior to independent evolution towards Neanderthals and modern humans in stage 6.
Multiple dispersals and modern human origins
There is no clear rubicon of modern Homo sapiens, and that multiple dispersals occurred from a morphologically variable population in Africa, so pre‐existing African diversity is crucial to the way human diversity developed outside Africa.
Early Divergent Strains of Yersinia pestis in Eurasia 5,000 Years Ago
A genomic history of Aboriginal Australia
A population expansion in northeast Australia during the Holocene epoch associated with limited gene flow from this region to the rest of Australia, consistent with the spread of the Pama–Nyungan languages is inferred.
Mode 3 Technologies and the Evolution of Modern Humans
The origins and evolution of modern humans has been the dominant interest in palaeoanthropology for the last decade, and much archaeological interpretation has been structured around the various…

The prehistoric peopling of Southeast Asia
Neither interpretation fits the complexity of Southeast Asian history: Both Hòabìnhian hunter-gatherers and East Asian farmers contributed to current Southeast Asian diversity, with further migrations affecting island SEA and Vietnam.
