A Study of Genetic Distance and the Austronesian/Non-Austronesian Dichotomy

Bhatia, K; Easteal, S; Kirk, R L


Data on genetic distance and unique allele distributions are presented for a number of Austronesian and non-Austronesian (Papuan) linguistic populations in the western Pacific. These data confirm separate origins for both of these major populations, but also suggest the existence of much subsequent gene flow between them. Genetic links between Australia and New Guinea are probably very remote in time.
