Human Dispersal and Species Movement : From Prehistory to the Present, Hardback Book

Human Dispersal and Species Movement : From Prehistory to the Present Hardback

Edited by Nicole Boivin, Michael D. Petraglia, Remy Crassard


How have humans colonised the entire planet and reshaped its ecosystems in the process?

This unique and groundbreaking collection of essays explores human movement through time, the impacts of these movements on landscapes and other species, and the ways in which species have co-evolved and transformed each other as a result.

Exploring the spread of people, plants, animals, and diseases through processes of migration, colonisation, trade and travel, it assembles a broad array of case studies from the Pliocene to the present.

The contributors from disciplines across the humanities and natural sciences are senior or established scholars in the fields of human evolution, archaeology, history, and geography.
