  1. Winter temperature as a constraint to the migration of preindustrial peoplesWhiting, John W.M. - American Anthropological Association, 1982 - 4 Hypotheses

    Using a sample of 313 societies classified within 24 language phyla, authors put forward a statistical model based on climate data [specifically focused on the 10°C (50°F) winter temperature isotherm] to explain why dispersion of preindustrial language phyla is remarkably homogeneous even despite heterogeneous geographical dispersion of sampled preindustrial cultural groups. They suggest that temperature has been a barrier to migration.
