Welcome to Anthropology 304

This is the course page for Anthropology 304, "Heredity, Environment, and Human Populations," at the University of Wisconsin - Madison.

Lecture notes (old powerpoint files by PDF) are available below. They are divided into six parts. I have also made two of my own book chapters available. The first one, chapter 2, covers genes, selection, and drift including some material on Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium. Chapter 3 discusses gene flow, FST and race.
