Woodland is a city located in a population of 62,, it is the th largest city in California and the th largest city in the United States. Woodland is currently growing at a rate of % annually and its population has increased by % since the most recent census, which recorded a population of 55, in Spanning over 15 miles, Woodland has a population. University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign: Degree: Ph.D. Genre: Dissertation: Subject(s): strontium strontium isotopic analysis hopewell hopewell interaction sphere middle woodland: Abstract: This research sought to compare levels of population movement in the Illinois and Ohio regions during the Middle Woodland period in Eastern North America.

Ogden-Fettie is a Middle Woodland Havana-Hopewell mound group in the Central Illinois Valley. Fv is the midden area near the largest mound. The function of Fv was in question, because it does not conform to the settlement and function models that have been applied to other sites. The ceramic collection from Fv was typed and categorized into categories based on perceived function. Archaeologists have recorded 7, Woodland sites in Illinois. When divided by the length of the Woodland period-1, years-there are Woodland sites per year. In contrast to the Archaic Period, the ratio of Woodland sites is almost four times as great. Again, archaeologists attribute some of this difference to an increase in population. What is not yet clear is to what extent population.

The team recovered segments of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) from 39 individuals (17 Late Woodland, 22 Mississippian) who had been interred in the Schild cemetery in western Illinois. They then compared these mtDNA lineages to ancient lineages identified at other sites in the region. The average Woodland man, surviving childhood, lived to 27 years of age. The women lived to 25 years. The typical Woodland community lost 30% of its population between the ages of 1 and 10 years of age, 10% died between the ages of 10 and 20 years. 30% died between 20 and 30 years, 24% died between the ages of 30 and 40 years.

Little is known about why Hopewell mound-building ended, about CE in the lower Illinois Valley and about – CE in the Scioto river valley.
