    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 104:20753-8. 2007
    ..We consider human demographic growth to be linked with past changes in human cultures and ecologies. Both processes have contributed to the extraordinarily rapid recent genetic evolution of our species...

    John Hawks
    Department of Anthropology, University of Wisconsin Madison, Madison, Wisconsin 53706, USA
    Am J Phys Anthropol 125:207-19. 2004
    ..Advancement in our knowledge of hominid phylogeny can depend only on a fuller understanding of the natural history and evolutionary dynamics of traits...

    John Hawks
    Department of Anthropology, University of Wisconsin Madison, Madison, WI 53706, USA
    Trends Genet 24:19-23. 2008
    ..This example may suggest that the evolution of human cognition depended in part on the genetic legacy of archaic groups such as the Neanderthals...
