Abstract

Five regional groups of the Kalitas, an Assamese caste group, have been investigated for the distribution of anthropometric and dermatoglyphic traits as well as for the distribution of AB0 blood groups and PTC taste sensitivity. The intergroup variability is to some extent considerable. The possible reasons for that are discussed. An fünf regionalen Gruppen der Kalitas, einer assamesischen Kaste, wird die Verteilung anthropometrischer und daktyloskopischer Merkmale wie auch der AB0-Blutgruppen und der PTC-Schmeckfähigkeit untersucht. Die Intergruppenvariabilität ist teilweise beträchtlich. Die möglichen Ursachen hierfür werden diskutiert.
