Bibliography Note Includes bibliographical references and index.
Summary The islands north of Australia are home to a set of remarkably diverse human populations. The authors have used a sampling strategy to reveal the complex structure of the variation of populations in this region. Their findings reveal early human migrations out of Africa and an abundance of genetic variation within Island Melanesia.
