When it comes to height, do you think phenotypic changes over time are driven mostly by genetic or environmental factors? Read this paper from and Samantha Cox to learn more about variation in human stature in prehistoric Europe.
Cool paper from the lab on evolution of human height in Europe! Genetic contributions to variation in human stature in prehistoric Europe
Genetic contributions to variation in human stature in prehistoric Europe: "We show that the observed decrease in height between the Early Upper Paleolithic and the Mesolithic is qualitatively predicted by genetics"
Cox et al Polygenic scores and variation in human stature in prehistoric Europe
Great work from . Genetic contributions to variation in human stature in prehistoric Europe
"We show that changes over the past 35,000 y are largely predicted by genetics but also identify specific shifts that are more likely to be environmentally driven."
