Biocultural Histories in La Florida: A Bioarchaeological Perspective
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungThis book examines the effects of the Spanish mission system on population structure and genetic variability in indigenous communities living in northern Florida and southern Georgia during the 16th and 17th centuries. Data on tooth size were collected from 26 archaeological samples representing three time periods: Late Precontact ( 1200-1500), Early Mission ( 1600-1650), and Late Mission ( 1650-1700) and were subjected to a series of statistical tests evaluating genetic variability. Predicted changes in phenotypic population variability are related to models of group interaction, population demo-graphy, and genetic admixture as suggested by ethnohistoric and archaeological data.
PortraitChristopher Stojanowski is Assistant Professor of Anthropology at Southern Illinois University Carbondale, and a specialist in bioarchaeology.
