His new book, by modern human populations. The first modern human samples we have in.

    The meat of the book deals with the human populations that are present today and how they — we — got here. Work on this question also upended Reich’s expectations. Comprehensive, advanced treatment of the nature and source of inherited characteristics, and mathematical techniques of population genetics. Mendelian populations, mutations, polymorphisms, genetic demography and natural selection, inbreeding, sexual dimorphism and human evolution, eugenics, euphenics, more. Emphasis on interpretation of data in relation to theoretical models.
