Microevolution Among the Yanadi Tribe: Population Structure and Sex Differences in Anthropometric and Dermatoglyphic Characters
TLDR
The results show that males and females within a regional population are more similar in their morphology and dermatoglyphic traits than when compared with their counter parts in other regional populations. Expand
Genetic Diversity in the Lesser Antilles and Its Implications for the Settlement of the Caribbean Basin
TLDR
The role of the region’s first peoples in shaping the genetic diversity seen in contemporary Caribbean populations is illustrated, including paternal indigenous American paternal ancestry indicated by the presence of haplogroup Q-M3 in 28% of the male participants from both communities. Expand
Genetic Structure and Its Implications for Genetic Epidemiology: Aleutian Island Populations
TLDR
This chapter examines the indigenous populations of the Aleutian Archipelago for the distribution of mtDNA and NRY genetic markers and their possible discontinuity resulting from their history and geography. Expand
Variation of Rhesus Haplotype Frequencies in North Africans and in Worldwide Population Analyses
TLDR
Analyses of the Rh haplotype frequency variation showed that worldwide populations represent a network of genetic relationships having adequate statistics and a general correspondence with geography coupled to historical patterns of gene flow and genetic drift influence. Expand
DNA fingerprinting in anthropological genetics: past, present, future
TLDR
These markers have been used to reconstruct evolutionary history and answer questions concerning human origins and diaspora, migration, and the effects of admixture and adaptation to different environments, as well as susceptibility and resistance to disease. Expand
Why Have the Peninsular “Negritos” Remained Distinct?
TLDR
A survey of current views on the “negrito” phenotype suggests that the phenotype originated recently and by biologically well-authenticated processes from within the neighboring populations, and that their continued distinctiveness has resulted from a wish to maintain a complementary advantage vis-à-vis other, less specialized populations.

Bayesian Genetic Analysis of Milk Yield in Tunisian Holstein Dairy Cattle Population
TLDR
The main finding of this paper showed the postulated major locus was not significant, since the 95% highest posterior density regions (HPDs95%) of most major gene parameters included 0, and particularly for the major gene variance. Expand

Population dynamics of the sickle-cell trait in the Black Caribs of British Honduras, Central America.
TLDR
It is suggested that because the Black Caribs are exposed to falciparum malaria of medium endemicity, the placenta of infected non-immune mothers might be predisposed to some mechanical injury causing intra-uterine death of fetus. Expand
The Black Carib of British Honduras
Socioecological stressor areas and black-white blood pressure: Detroit.
TLDR
For Black males, the younger, overweight High Stress residents had significantly higher Borderline and Hypertensive levels than did a similar Black Low Stress subgroup, and for both groups, being raised in Detroit and not migrating from elsewhere was related to higher readings. Expand
Dermatoglyphic inter-and intrapopulation variation among indigenous New Guinea groups
Enga communities of the Papua New Guinea highlands are the subject of detailed intrapopulational analysis of dermatoglyphics. It is found that they have a high incidence of whorls and low incidenceExpand
Population distribution in North and Central America of PGM1 and Gc subtypes as determined by isoelectric focusing (IEF).
TLDR
Gc subtypes and multivariate analysis to identify genetic affinities of the populations under study reveal genetic clusters consistent with major historical and geographical groupings of man. Expand
Blood Pressure, Body Composition, and Fat Tissue Cellularity in Adults
TLDR
Fat mass as opposed to body mass, per se, may be an important etiological component in elevated blood pressure in adults, according to a study of healthy adults unselected with respect to blood pressure or body composition. Expand
