Pre-Columbian population
The population figure for Indigenous peoples in the Americas before the 1492 voyage of Christopher Columbus has proven difficult to establish. Scholars rely on archaeological data and written records from settlers from the Old World. Most scholars writing at the end of the 19th century estimated the pre-Columbian population at about 10 million; by the end of the 20th century the scholarly consensus had shifted to about 50 million, with some arguing for 100 million or more. Contact with the New World led to the Western European colonization of the Americas, in which millions of immigrants from the Old World eventually settled in the New.
The population of African and Eurasian peoples in the Americas grew steadily, while the number of the indigenous people plummeted. Eurasian diseases such as smallpox, influenza, bubonic plague and pneumonic plagues devastated the Native Americans who did not have immunity. Conflict and outright warfare with Western European newcomers and other American tribes further reduced populations and disrupted traditional society. The extent and causes of the decline have long been a subject of academic debate, along with its characterization as a genocide.

Up and Down in Moxos: People and environment in pre-Columbian Amazonia: two new proxies
What was the extent of human occupation and environmental impact in the pre-Columbian Amazonia? This question has been at the center of much of the research on pre-Columbian Amazonia since Betty Meggers published her paper ‘Environmental Limitation on the Development of Culture’ (1). The reconstruction of the Amazon’s past is based on evidence obtained from the study of the present landscape, sediments and archaeological remains.

Native American Dogs, Dog Breeds Have Ancient Asian Origins | Global Animal
(DOGS) The extinction of indigenous American dog breeds has generally been associated with the arrival of Europeans in America. However, new research is challenging this idea. DNA confirms that the original population of native American dogs has been almost completely preserved. The new genetic analysis reveals that modern breeds from the Americas largely trace their ancestry to dogs brought from Asia by native peoples, and are thriving today despite beliefs of them being extinct. Read on for more information on this groundbreaking discovery in the canine world. — Global Animal
