Late Pleistocene climate change and the global expansion of anatomically modern humans.

Abstract

The extent to which past climate change has dictated the pattern and timing of the out-of-Africa expansion by anatomically modern humans is currently unclear [Stewart JR, Stringer CB (2012) Science 335:1317-1321].
