Overview

The Human Biology of Pastoral Populations draws together the current knowledge of the biology, population structure, and ecology of herding populations. It investigates how pastoral populations adapt to limited and variable food availability, the implications of the herding way of life for reproductive patterns, population structure and genetic diversity, and the impacts of ongoing social and ecological changes on the health and well-being of these populations. This volume will be of broad interest to scholars in anthropology, human biology, genetics, and demography.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Specialists in nomadic pastoralists in anthropology, demography, genetics, and medicine explore the ecology and population biology of contemporary herding groups from Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East. Their studies are designed to complement the research into sociocultural variation in pastoral populations. The topics include the genetic structure of the Basque herders of northern Spain, the changing pattern of Tibetan nomadic pastoralism, and pastoralism and the evolution of lactase persistence. The 12 papers were developed from a 1997 symposium in Seattle. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
From the Publisher
"This fascinating book provides a wide-ranging introduction to the biological characteristics of animal-herding populations around the world. The editors have accomplished the unenviable task of bringing together research on pastoralists from geographically diverse locations in Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East and, in the process, draw researchers from anthropology, demography, genetics, and medicine.... This book should be on the shelf of any scholar, from any discipline, with an interest in the health of pastoral populations worldwide." The Quarterly Review of Biology

"...this volume provides a unique collection of research on the biological consequences of the herding existence. The volume is well-written, informative, and is highly recommended for researchers and graduate students interested in the relationships among substinence, social organization, and human biology. In addition, the chapters would serve nicely as case studies in a graduate seminar in human biology." American Journal of Human Biology
