Evidence of Late Pleistocene human colonization of isolated islands beyond Wallace's Line: New isotopic study of fossil teeth shows flexible human adaptations to Pleistocene island life through time

What makes our species unique compared to other hominins? High profile genetic, fossil and material culture discoveries present scientists working in the Late Pleistocene with an ever-more complex picture of interactions between early hominin populations. One distinctive characteristic of Homo sapiens, however, appears to be its global distribution. Exploring how Homo sapiens colonized most of the world's continents in a relatively short period could revea..
