        The presence of tsetse flies in eastern Africa has been used as an explanation for observed patterns of subsistence diversity among early pastoralists in the Lake Victoria basin (21, 28) and for limited southward movement (15, 20, 29, 30).A range of zoonoses posed threats for early herders, but trypanosomiasis risks have an especially widespread effect on human communities, even .   Stable-carbon isotope ratios as a measure of marine versus terrestrial protein in ancient diets, Science – 2.
