Genes, peoples, and languages by L. L Cavalli-Sforza( Book )

59 editions published between 1991 and 2008 in 5 languages and held by 1,648 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Luigi Luca Cavalli-Sforza was among the first to ask whether the genes of modern populations contain a historical record of the human species. Cavalli-Sforza and others have answered this question - anticipated by Darwin - with a decisive yes. Genes, Peoples, and Languages comprises five lectures that serve as a summation of the author's work over several decades, the goal of which has been nothing less than tracking the past 100,000 years of human evolution."--Jacket
The history and geography of human genes by L. L Cavalli-Sforza( Book )

36 editions published between 1993 and 1997 in English and held by 1,405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L. Luca Cavalli-Sforza and his collaborators Paolo Menozzi and Alberto Piazza have devoted fourteen years to one of the most compelling scientific projects of our time: the reconstruction of where human populations originated and the paths by which they spread throughout the world. In this volume, the culmination of their research, the authors explain their pioneering use of genetic data, which they integrate with insights from geography, ecology, archaeology, physical anthropology, and linguistics to create the first full-scale account of human evolution as it occurred across all continents
Consanguinity, inbreeding, and genetic drift in Italy by L. L Cavalli-Sforza( )

14 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and held by 1,250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1951, the geneticist Luigi Luca Cavalli-Sforza was teaching in Parma when a student--a priest named Antonio Moroni--told him about rich church records of demography and marriages between relatives. After convincing the Church to open its records, Cavalli-Sforza, Moroni, and Gianna Zei embarked on a landmark study that would last fifty years and cover all of Italy. This book assembles and analyzes the team's research for the first time. Using blood testing as well as church records, the team investigated the frequency of consanguineous marriages and its use for estimating inbreedin
The great human diasporas : the history of diversity and evolution by L. L Cavalli-Sforza( Book )

24 editions published between 1995 and 2003 in English and Arabic and held by 1,076 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the course of his work, Cavalli-Sforza joined forces with archaeologists, linguists, anthropologists, and molecular biologists. He shows how both archaeological and genetic data were used to track human migrations during the spread of agriculture; he probes such topics as the existence of a single ancestral language and the relationship between biological and linguistic evolution; and he brings us up to date with his current work as chief sponsor of the human genome diversity project, an ambitious attempt to analyze the most significant individual variations in human genomes
