About this book

Studying human migratory patterns can help us make sense of evolution, biology, linguistics, and so much more.

Human Migration takes readers through population development and their respective origins to create a comprehensive picture of human migratory patterns. This book explores human migration as a major contributor to globalization that facilitates gene flow and the exchange of cultures and languages. It also traces evolutionary success of a hybrid population, the Black Caribs, after their forced relocation from St. Vincent Island to the Bay Islands and Central America.

The volume is split into four sections: Theoretical Overview; Ancient DNA and Migration; Regional Migration; Culture and Migration: and Disease and Migration. This division allows for a seamless transition between a broad range of topics, including molecular genetics, linguistics, cultural anthropology, history, archaeology, demography, and genetic epidemiology. Assembled by volume editors and migration specialists María de Lourdes Muñoz-Moreno and Michael H. Crawford, Human Migration creates an opportunity for researchers, professionals, and students from different fields to review and discuss the most recent trends and challenges surrounding migration, genetics, and anthropology.

María de Lourdes Muñoz-Moreno was born in Mexico City, Mexico. She is a Research Professor in the Department of Genetics and Molecular Biology at the Centro de Investigación y de Estudios Avanzados (CINVESTAV-IPN). Muñoz-Moreno was a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Department of Pathology and Visiting Fellow for "Advanced Research Experience" at the National Institute of Health in Maryland. Later, she was Visiting Professor in the Department of Genetics at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine. Muñoz-Moreno did a sabbatical year at the Laboratory of Biological Anthropology at the University of Kansas from 2015 to 2016 to start a collaborative research project with Dr Michael H. Crawford. The main focus of this research was on the population genetics of pre-Hispanic and contemporary Mexicans.

Michael H. Crawford was born in Shanghai, China, but he lived in displaced persons camps in the Philippine Islands (Tubabao) and Australia (Urunquinty). He earned his PhD in anthropology and genetics in 1967 from the University of Washington, Seattle. Crawford was a Professor of Anthropology and Genetics at the University of Kansas for 50 years prior to retirement in 2020. In 1976, he established the Laboratory of Biological Anthropology. Over the years, he has mentored 41 PhDs and 20 post-doctoral fellows. Crawford has conducted field investigations in Mexico, the Caribbean, Siberia, the Aleutian Islands, Italy, and India. He has published more than 300 peer-reviewed articles in national and international journals.
