We consider sex differences in human facial morphology in the context of developmental change. We show that at puberty, the height of the upper face, between the lip and the brow, develops differently in males and females, and that these differences are not explicable in terms of sex differences in body size. We find the same dimorphism in the faces of human ancestors. We propose that the relative shortening in men and lengthening in women of the anterior upper face at puberty is the…

Patterns of cranial sexual dimorphism in certain groups of extant hominoids

It is suggested that the differences which occur between hominoid groups in their patterns of sexual dimorphism are probably the result of a mixture of time and rate hypermorphoses acting upon different ontogenetic trajectories.

Sexual Dimorphism in the Craniofacial Skeleton of Modern Humans

The results of this study suggest that the consistency in patterns of between-population sexual dimorphism warrant caution when extrapolating from one sample to others for the purposes of sex discrimination.
