  1. Within-population musical variability will be greater than between-population variability (1607).Rzeszutek, Tom - The structure of cross-cultural musical diversity, 2012 - 2 Variables

    By analyzing patterns of between- and within-population musical variability among 16 Austronesian-speaking aboriginal groups, the researchers hope to evaluate degree of similarity to structures of human genetic diversity. As in the genetic domain, within-population variance is found to be much higher than between-population variance, leading the researchers to suggest that patterns of musical distance and divergence may serve as an indicator of cultural evolution.
