Biology has traditionally been a place where biological diversity is most visible.
Today, that is changing.
As the number of humans continues to grow, and as people increasingly encounter each other, the human body is undergoing a rapid expansion, with the human genome becoming a much larger and more diverse set of genetic material than it was in the past.
To help better understand how our bodies are changing, we are exploring some of the biological mechanisms that are playing a larger role in shaping the human experience, including what we call diffusion.
In this article, we discuss the ways in which we humans are adapting to a changing environment.
We also discuss the implications for our understanding of the origins and development of human diversity, and the possible implications for human health.
