Using ancient DNA to study climate change, mass extinctions, and human evolution

Ancient DNA provides a unique means to watch evolution occurring in real time.  By tracking genetic changes in ancient populations we can examine the effects of major climatic changes on animal and plant populations from around the world through the last 100,000 years, as well as human impacts and other evolutionary phenomena such as volcanic […]
