Y chromosome data show that living Europeans have deep roots in the region--and researchers say genetic markers may be linked to cultures known from archaeological remains. In a report on page 1155, an international team reports that a wealth of data from the Y chromosome show that more than 80% of European men have inherited their Y chromosomes--which are transmitted only from father to son--from Paleolithic ancestors who lived 25,000 to 40,000 years ago. Thus, the genetic template for… Expand
Hunters of the Ice Age: The biology of Upper Paleolithic people.
Key studies about the biology of Upper Paleolithic populations are reviewed based primarily on European samples, but integrating information from other areas of the Old World whenever possible, to help clarify the effects of the Last Glacial Maximum. Expand
Croatian genetic heritage: Y-chromosome story
The aim of this article is to offer a concise interpretation of the scientific data about the topic of Croatian genetic heritage that was obtained over the past 10 years, based mostly on Y-chromosome results, to help understand the structure of Croatian population in more detail. Expand
The Mediterranean Human Population: An Anthropological Genetics Perspective
The Mediterranean Sea has long been one of the most important and crowded natural hubs for the expansion of human genes and cultures, representing a tri-continental crossroads for human migrationsExpand
The relationship between blood groups and disease.
Investigation of the migration patterns of early humans from Africa to populate the rest of the world obtained through the use of Y chromosome and mtDNA markers suggests surviving malaria is the most significant selective force affecting the expression of blood groups. Expand

It is argued however that although biology-based identities carry risks of essentialism and determinism, the practices and organisation of classification pose greater political dangers. Expand
A Quest for Antecedents:: A Comparison of the Terminal Middle Palaeolithic and Early Upper Palaeolithic of the Levant
The significance of the Upper Palaeolithic is one of the most intriguing questions for Palaeolithic researchers. Due to the Levant’s strategic location at a bottleneck between continents (sensuExpand
Cladistic analysis of languages: Indo‐European classification based on lexicostatistical data
The results suggest a predominantly branching pattern of the basic vocabulary phylogeny and little borrowing of individual words. Expand
The influence of masticatory loading on craniofacial morphology: A test case across technological transitions in the Ohio valley.
An extinct human population from the middle and upper Ohio valley that underwent a marked shift from hunting-gathering to extensive farming during the last 3,000 years is tested, highlighting the utility of exploring specific localized morphological shifts using a hierarchical model of craniofacial integration.

Did pioneer farmers fail to spread their seed?
European immigrants may have passed on agricultural skills, but not their genes.
