Reconstructing Human Origins

Hi Folks,

For anyone interested in this REVIEW article from Nature Reviews
Genetics, I've downloaded and saved it as a PDF file. I can e-mail it
to anyone as an attachment.

As Ann Turner has related, the article is just chock-full of informative
diagrams and sidebars.
