Riel-Salvatore study cited as alternative explanation in Neanderthal extinction

Assistant professor of anthropology Julien Riel-Salvatore, has gotten a lot of press for his recent publications examining shared DNA sequencing of ancient Neanderthal and modern human populations. His studies have indicated that Neanderthal genes make up from 1 to 4 percent of the genome of modern humans, which would indicate that early humans and Neanderthals may have inter-bred before Neanderthals became extinct.
