Timeline for AMH evolution in South Asia based on genetic, archaeological, climatological and linguistic evidence. Black and grey portions of the arrow represent Pleistocene and Holocene, respectively. Blue sections correspond to periods of climate changes: dryer periods between 35 and 30 ka, Last Glacial Maximum ~18 ka, Younger Dryas ~12 ka and the “4.2 ka” event. Lineages in red stand for the putative Late Glacial/postglacial genetic influx from West Eurasia; green for migrations from West Eurasia around the Pleistocene/Holocene transition, orange for the Neolithic period and blue for the genetic events in the last 4 ka
