I am curious as to whether there is any evidence that man has existed
long enough in the new world to evolve any adaptations.

I would include in this grouping the range of peoples
from the Clovis and Folsom, Dorset,Inuit and Thule hunters,
to the Tolmec, Olmec, Myan and Aztec agriculturalists,of
Mezo America, the South American Maritime cultures
and the archaic indians of the Northeast.

It would seem at first glance that there are a number of
possible differences, related to things like diet, climate,
lifestyle, and behavior in general as well as genetics.
