Beschrijving Human Migration

Studying human migratory patterns can help us make sense of evolution, biology, linguistics, and so much more.

Human Migration takes readers through population development and their respective origins to create a comprehensive picture of human migratory patterns. This book explores human migration as a major contributor to globalization that facilitates gene flow and the exchange of cultures and languages. It also traces evolutionary success of a hybrid population, the Black Caribs, after their forced relocation from St. Vincent Island to the Bay Islands and Central America.

The volume is split into four sections: Theoretical Overview; Ancient DNA and Migration; Regional Migration; Culture and Migration: and Disease and Migration. This division allows for a seamless transition between a broad range of topics, including molecular genetics, linguistics, cultural anthropology, history, archaeology, demography, and genetic epidemiology. Assembled by volume editors and migration specialists María de Lourdes Muñoz-Moreno and Michael H. Crawford, Human
Migration creates an opportunity for researchers, professionals, and students from different fields to review and discuss the most recent trends and challenges surrounding migration, genetics, and anthropology.
