Peninsular West Asian expansion into America from the 1500's on is
unquestionable.[1] What other expansion was going on elsewhere at the same
time, and when did the PWA expansion pass the others -- I would presume,
first as a proportional increase in the area under PWA control, and later
as a share of the total expansion taking place by distinct areas in the
Afrasian axial system?

[1] That is, the Iberian Peninsula, Italian Peninsula, Scandinavian
Peninsula, etc. in the portion of West Asia roughly due north of Africa.
