A holistic and accomplished account of the character of the transition from searching to farming in prehistory. It addresses for the 1st time the most bioarchaeological elements reminiscent of adjustments in mobility, behaviour, vitamin and inhabitants dynamics.
This publication is of significant curiosity to the suitable viewers because it deals for the 1st time an international point of view at the bioarchaeology of the transition to agriculture. It comprises contributions from world-class researchers, with a specific emphasis on advances in tools (e.g. historic DNA of pathogens, sturdy isotope research, etc.).
The ebook particularly addresses the subsequent points linked to the transition to agriculture in a number of international regions:
- Changes in grownup and subadult stature and subadult progress profiles
- Diachronic tendencies within the research of useful morphological constructions (craniofacial, vault, reduce limbs, etc.) and even if those are linked to swap in total sex-specific morphological variability
- Changes in mobility
- Changes in behaviour that are reconstructed from the learn of the skeletal list. those contain alterations in job styles, sexual dimorphism, facts of inter-personal trauma, etc.
- Population dynamics and microevolution through reading intra and inter inhabitants diversifications in dental and cranial metric features, in addition to archaeogenetic reviews of old DNA (e.g. mtDNA markers).
