Menschen im Schmelztiegel der Eiszeit

March 15, 2012 - Research suggests that as modern humans migrated out of Africa, ice-age conditions forced them to shelter in “refugia” occupied by smaller groups of distant cousins. Subsequent evolutionary change may have led to one global species of human – and the demise of its Neanderthal and Denisovan ancestors.
