A reanalysis of previous estimates of the degree of racial differentiation in man based upon blood group frequencies points out systematic underestimates inherent in the methods. A comparison of several measures of genetic distance indicates that the Shannon-Wiener information statistic is not sensitive to the appropriate range of gene frequency differences found between populations of man, and estimates of genetic distance averaged over several or many loci may disguise substantial… Expand
