The book synthesizes the relevant parts of the disciplines of anthropology and biogeography. Each discipline has data and concepts useful and used by the other, but the two often do not know it and therefore miss potential synergy. A major issue in this book is the reason for human variation. Humans vary in a number of ways, including physiologically, depending on their region of origin. It can be medically vital to recognize that variation and to understand the biology behind it.
