    Polynesians form an ethnolinguistic group of closely related people who are native to Polynesia (islands in the Polynesian Triangle), an expansive region of Oceania in the Pacific trace their early prehistoric origins to Island Southeast Asia and form part of the larger Austronesian ethnolinguistic group with an Urheimat in speak the Polynesian languages, a branch of the. East Asians, where yellow indicates high genetic similarity between pairs. The outgroup f 3 test takes the form f 3(Mbuti; X, Y) where X and Y are Neolithic Asians listed in the rows and columns and Mbuti (a present-day population from Central Africa) is the outgroup. SE Asia refers to Southeast Asia, and SW Pacific refers to Southwest Pacific.

    Oceania was the last region on earth to be permanently inhabited, with the final settlers reaching Aotearoa/New Zealand approximately AD This is about the same time that related Polynesian populations began erecting Easter Island's gigantic statues, farming the valley slopes of Tahiti and similar islands, and moving finely made basalt tools over several thousand kilometers of open ocean. Population genetics is a subfield of genetics that deals with genetic differences within and between populations, and is a part of evolutionary s in this branch of biology examine such phenomena as adaptation, speciation, and population structure.. Population genetics was a vital ingredient in the emergence of the modern evolutionary synthesis.

Ancient DNA Reveals Genetic Replacement Despite Language Continuity in the South Pacific. New genetic research reveals the complex demographic history of Vanuatu, explaining how Austronesian languages were retained throughout its history despite near-total replacement of early Austronesian-Lapita with Papuan ancestry.

This chapter reports the paternally inherited Y chromosome variation, following the same format as for the mitochondrial DNA. Using an expanded battery of regionally informative markers, this chapter greatly expands the known Y chromosome variation in the Southwest Pacific, and shows that the paternally inherited variation in the region is generally comparable to the maternally inherited mtDNA.

Progress has been limited by the available data and by the methods employed to compare patterns of genetic and linguistic variation. Here, we use high-quality data and novel methods to test two models of genetic and linguistic coevolution in Northern Island.
