So far, the demographic strategies – sleek human inhabitants sizes, distributions and pursuits – that happened inside of Africa in this severe interval were always under-addressed. 
The authors of this quantity goal at (1) interpreting the influence of this glacial-interglacial- glacial cycle on human crew sizes, events and distributions all through Africa; (2) investigating the macro- and micro-evolutionary methods underpinning our species’ anatomical and behavioral evolution; and (3) environment an time table wherein Africa can take advantage of, and at last give a contribution to, the more and more refined theoretical and methodological palaeodemographic frameworks built on different continents.
