Human and animal hairs are studied in various fields of knowledge, from evolutionary biology to criminology, and these studies have both theoretical and practical implications. At the level of the light� optical microscopy, the hair structure of humans and various mammalian species has been well studied; there are numerous atlases and descriptions; diagnos� ing of animal species and human races is now possible. The published data suggest that hair cuticle and cortex are similar in humans and… 

A Study of Selected Physicomechanical and Histological Parameters of Hair Originating from Three Primate Species

Hairs from various primate species differ in terms of their morphological structure and histological features and thus can be used for differentiation and identification of species.

Hair histology as a tool for forensic identification of some domestic animal species

Animal hair examination at a criminal scene may provide valuable information in forensic investigations. However, local reference databases for animal hair identification are rare. In the present

Performance scanning electron microscopic investigations and elemental analysis of hair of the different animal species for forensic identification

Veterinary forensics have attracted less attention compared with human forensics. Animal hair morphological examination using scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and hair mineral analysis using

Nanoindentation of Hair Cortex and Medulla Regions

A linear correlation between hardness and indentation modulus is found and it is found that donor age has no influence on cortex modulus and hardness, and the findings will be useful for dermatologists in estimating the hair disorders and for estimating dye uptake of keratin fibers in textiles.

Using hybrid atomic force microscopy and infrared spectroscopy (AFM‐IR) to identify chemical components of the hair medulla on the nanoscale

By analysing the carbonyl stretching region, it was established that the fibrillar, cortical cell‐like components showed considerable stabilisation from H‐bonding interactions, similar to the cortex, involving amino acid side chains whereas, in contrast, the vacuoles were found to only be stabilised significantly by structural lipids.

Genomic divergences between humans and other hominoids and the effective population size of the common ancestor of humans and chimpanzees.

The human lineage apparently had experienced a large reduction in effective population size after its separation from the chimpanzee lineage, suggesting that the gorilla lineage branched off 1.6 to 2.2 million years earlier than did the human-chimpanzee divergence.
