The dispersal of Homo sapiens out of Africa is a significant topic in human evolutionary studies. [] Key Result We show that climatic and environmental fluctuations during the Late Pleistocene would have had significant demographic effects on Arabian and South Asian populations, though indigenous populations would have responded in different ways. Based on a review of the current genetic, archaeological and environmental data, we indicate that demographic patterns in Arabia and South Asia are more…
The success of failed Homo sapiens dispersals out of Africa and into Asia

TLDR
This Perspective reviews the current evidence for a scenario where the MIS-5 dispersal encompassed a much greater geographic distribution and temporal duration and the validity of measuring dispersal success only through genetic continuity into the present is examined.
Early modern human dispersal from Africa: genomic evidence for multiple waves of migration
TLDR
It is concluded that the hypothesis of a single major human dispersal from Africa appears hardly compatible with the observed historical and geographical patterns of genome diversity, and that Australo-Melanesian populations seem still to retain a genomic signature of a more ancient divergence from Africa.

A climatic context for the out-of-Africa migration
Around 200,000 yr ago, Homo sapiens emerged in Africa. By 40 ka, Homo sapiens had spread throughout Eurasia, and a major competing species, the Neanderthals, became extinct. The factors that drove
Blue Arabia, Green Arabia: Examining Human Colonisation and Dispersal Models
The dispersal of hominins (our species and our closely related bipedal ancestors) out of Africa is a major topic in human evolutionary studies. As a geographic cross-road between continents, the
Genetic and archaeological perspectives on the initial modern human colonization of southern Asia
TLDR
This work presents an alternative model based on a combination of genetic analyses and recent archaeological evidence from South Asia and Africa that supports a coastally oriented dispersal of modern humans from eastern Africa to southern Asia ∼60–50 thousand years ago (ka).
When did Homo sapiens first reach Southeast Asia and Sahul?
TLDR
Evidence for AMH arrival on an arc spanning South China through Sahul and then evaluate data from Madjedbebe finds that an age estimate of >50 ka for this site is unlikely to be valid, and suggests that AMH may have moved far beyond Africa well before 50–55 ka.
Rethinking the dispersal of Homo sapiens out of Africa
TLDR
The emerging picture of the dispersal process suggests dynamic behavioral variability, complex interactions between populations, and an intricate genetic and cultural legacy in Homo sapiens out of Africa.

Genetic evidence of an early exit of Homo sapiens sapiens from Africa through eastern Africa
TLDR
M is rendered the first genetic indicator for the hypothesized exit route from Africa through eastern Africa/western India, possibly the only successful early dispersal event of modern humans out of Africa.
Ethnic populations of India as seen from an evolutionary perspective
TLDR
Analysis of variation at DNA level in contemporary human populations of India has provided evidence that mitochondrial DNA haplotypes based on RFLPs are strikingly similar across ethnic groups of India, consistent with the hypothesis that a small number of females entered India during the initial process of the peopling of India.
Multiple dispersals and modern human origins
TLDR
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.

TLDR
It is suggested here that the answer to why it took these populations approximately 100,000 years to disperse from Africa to other regions of the world has never been clearly resolved may lie partly in the results of recent DNA studies of present-day African populations, combined with a spate of new archaeological discoveries in Africa.

Reconstructing Indian-Australian phylogenetic link
TLDR
The results showing a shared mtDNA lineage between Indians and Australian Aborigines provides direct genetic evidence of an early colonization of Australia through south Asia, following the "southern route".
Single, Rapid Coastal Settlement of Asia Revealed by Analysis of Complete Mitochondrial Genomes
TLDR
It is shown that mitochondrial DNA variation in isolated “relict” populations in southeast Asia supports the view that there was only a single dispersal from Africa, most likely via a southern coastal route, through India and onward into southeast Asia and Australasia.
Mitochondrial lineage M1 traces an early human backflow to Africa
TLDR
This study provides evidence that M1, or its ancestor, had an Asiatic origin, and a relevant fraction of M1a lineages present today in the European Continent and nearby islands possibly had a Jewish instead of the commonly proposed Arab/Berber maternal ascendance.
