I can appreciate the caution on this, I eagerly await the published paper, the fact it has been submitted for peer review is a giant step in this
venue of study.
I will admit that I have some what of a bias in this regard, as I have personally seen fresh footprints, scat, and hair. For years I have struggled
with this dicotomy, I know that it exists, but can't find any evidence.
I grew up, basically a " country kid" , I hunted and fished roamed the mountains of central cal and am quite familair with all the large mammals in
my region, and none of them could possibly leave the fresh track we followed, in several different locations along the trail, that was laid down on
top of my friends tracks.
I can appreciate the skepticism Hans, two months ago I would have been in your camp, but like I mentioned earlier, I found a couple of anthroblogs,
that raised some very valid questions.
One of the blogs discusses published peer reviewed papers in genetics, and anthropology, dentition among other fields of study. You will find an
educated and spirited discussion on many of
the papers reviewed.
The first article on that page , is doozy and helps explain a few things about eurasian people.
I highly recomend reading through the articles.
