Human evolution in the Holocene (11,700 ybp. – present) was very rapid compared to previous epochs.
Adaptive evolution was 100 times faster than during the Pleistocene. â[n]ew analyses of the human genome have
established that human evolution has been recent, copious, and regionalâ (Wade, 2014, p.2).
Many traits have spread and varied among humans living the Holocene. Lactase persistence, altitude adaptations, disease adaptations, collectivism etc etc. What about intelligence? Cultural complexity increased among Eurasian populations â did GCA increases drive this? … Complexification.
