About the Authors
  • Human Population Dynamics introduces theoretical frameworks and methodologies from different traditional disciplines to demonstrate how changes in human population structure can be addressed from several different academic perspectives. The book contains contributions from world-renowned researchers in demography, social and biological anthropology, genetics, biology, sociology, ecology, history and human geography. In particular, the contributors emphasize the lability of many population structures and boundaries, as viewed from their area of expertise.

    • Introduces the different disciplinary approaches to the study of human populations
    • Emphasises that the structures and boundaries of human populations change
    • Aimed at academic researchers, graduates and undergraduate students
