"Races or Clines?

Lieberman, Leonard and Rice, Patricia. 1996.

This teaching module demonstrates that characteristics conventionally used to identify biological races (e.g. skin color) do not support the concept of race as a valid scientific biological category because the traits do not covary. Included is a set of maps to show the lack of co-variation of supposed "racial" characteristics. This module can be used in conjunction with another module, "Race 1997 and 2001".
