But that is the point, they were not tropical adapted. They already were a mix between tropical adapted and cold adapted long before they even entered Europe because they were living in Cold Adapted Northern Hemispheric Low UV Radiation Eurasian regions just as the Neanderthals were. The further one is from the tropics the less tropical he is.<quoted text>
I think you're missing my point a bit...What I am saying is that the settlers who migrated into Europe were tropically adapted. But once they entered Europe they became Cold Adapted. Again I am saying before they entered Europe they were tropically adapted similar but NOT related to Africans.
Pre-historic Mediterraneans cluster close to modern Southern Europeans, that is what the article you posted is saying, that they don't cluster close to Central and Northern Europeans but that Earliest European Farmers do cluster close to Southern Europeans. Central and Northern Europeans cluster closer to Cro-Magnon types.<quoted text>
Jeff...I am not saying that the first people of Europe were not Eurasian, but tropically adapted.
^^^^Even pre-historic Mediterraneans group away from modern Europeans.
'Earliest European Farmers Left Little Genetic Mark On Modern Europe'
^^^Again the Ancient Europeans were different from modern Europeans.
"The team confirmed that, of modern people, Sardinians are Ötzi's closest relatives. But among the prehistoric quartet,Ötzi most closely resembled the farmers found in Bulgaria and Sweden, while the Swedish and Iberian hunter-gatherers [Cro-Magnon] looked more like present-day Northern Europeans." ~ LiveScience
