Excuse me: I'm having a bit of trouble visualizing the different time
scales required for

	(a) gene-pool mixing via exchange of migrating individuals, which
           would support the evolution of several populations along
	    similar/same lines


	(b) evolution of H erectus to H sapiens being 'finished' at
	    one site, and spreading with little or no further evolution.

Spread-and-evolve seems congruent to Evolve-and-spread: why is it not so?

Would someone please spell this out?

Many thanks.
