Templeton, in Human Population Genetics and Genomics, Ancient DNA studies have the advantage of providing a direct window into the past, but the samples are often geographically and temporally sparse.

Inferences about the past depend upon four levels of sampling: (1) genetic sampling (how many variable sites are surveyed and how they are measured); (2) the number of individuals.

Turner studies human-environment relationships from the ancient Maya to contemporary sustainability science.
