Next, we analyzed a dataset comprised of all available ancient dog sequences from the Americas to infer the pre-Columbian population history of dogs in the Americas.
Interestingly, we found low levels of genetic diversity for some populations consistent with the possibility of deliberate breeding practices.
At the sites, indications of rice cultivation are in great abundance, as piles of rice grains, husks, stalks and leaves have been found there. Examinations reveal that the rice grown at Hemudu was long-grained non-glutinous rice, and is the earliest example of artificially-cultivated rice that has been found in China to date.
The relics are also the oldest rice found so far in Asia.
Instead this paper will document flexible and opportunistic subsistence behaviour by Neanderthals at Lynford.The site has been interpreted as evidence of Neanderthal hunting and butchery of mammoth through the absence of long bones and high incidence of pathologies.Detailed taphonomic investigation has highlighted a reduced role for hominins in faunal accumulation at this location.One was the use of iron tools and beasts of burden to pull plows, and the other was the large-scale harnessing of rivers and development of water conservancy projects.These developments were widely spread during the ensuing Warring States Period (475-221 BC).
