The human genetic make-up of Latin America is a reflection of successive waves of colonization and immigration. There have been few works dealing with the biology of human populations at a continental scale, and while much data is available on the genetics of Latin American populations, most information remains scattered throughout the literature. This volume examines Latin American human populations in relation to their origins, environment, history, demography and genetics, drawing on aspects of nutrition, physiology, and morphology for an integrated and multidisciplinary approach. The result is a fascinating account of a people characterized by a turbulent history, marked heterogeneity, and unique genetic traits.

The human genetic make-up of Latin America reflects successive waves of colonisation and immigration. This volume takes an integrated approach to examine Latin American human populations, considering such questions as how can the population be characterised? Who colonised the region and what has happened to them in the distant and recent past? What factors have influenced the population's diversity? Aimed primarily at students and researchers of genetics, evolution, biological anthropology and social sciences, it constitutes an important volume not only for anthropological genetics, but also for Latin American research.About the Author:
Francisco M. Salzano is Emeritus Professor of Genetics at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul in Porto Alegre, Brazil, and is one of the most eminent geneticists in Latin America working in the field of anthropology. While his main scientific interest is in human population genetics, his research also covers medical, animal and plant genetics. He has previously published a number of influential works in both English and Portuguese and has received several awards including the Almirante Alvaro Alberto National Prize and the Franz Boas High Achievement Award of the Human Biology Association.
