A holistic and finished account of the character of the transition from looking to farming in prehistory. It addresses for the 1st time the most bioarchaeological facets comparable to adjustments in mobility, behaviour, vitamin and inhabitants dynamics.
This publication is of significant curiosity to the appropriate viewers because it deals for the 1st time an international viewpoint 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, solid isotope research, etc.).
The booklet in particular addresses the next facets linked to the transition to agriculture in numerous global regions:
- Changes in grownup and subadult stature and subadult development profiles
- Diachronic traits within the research of practical morphological constructions (craniofacial, vault, reduce limbs, etc.) and no matter if those are linked to switch in total sex-specific morphological variability
- Changes in mobility
- Changes in behaviour which are reconstructed from the learn of the skeletal checklist. those contain adjustments in task styles, sexual dimorphism, proof of inter-personal trauma, and so on.
- Population dynamics and microevolution through interpreting intra and inter inhabitants adaptations in dental and cranial metric features, in addition to archaeogenetic experiences of historical DNA (e.g. mtDNA markers).
