Genetics of dermal ridges; the relation between total ridge-count and the variability of counts from finger to finger.

Abstract

Several years ago the distributions of the ridge-counts on all ten fingers were given for a small sample of unrelated persons (Holt, 1949). A more detailed analysis has recently been made of the digital counts of a population sample of 1650 persons, 825 males and 825 females, and the results are given here. Included in the sample are the 100 males and 100… (More)
