Abstract

13 dermatoglyphic variables have been studied in eight population samples (five smaller isolated and three larger populations) to identify the possible differences between the larger and the smaller isolated populations. The data and neighbor joining trees for the dermatoglyphic variables show distinct differences between males and females. The isolated population of the Lutheran Mountains is clearly separated from the other populations. Combining the results of dermatoglyphic and 12 hemogenetic variables (only for six populations) the male and female trees are nearly identical. The three isolated populations are clearly separated, whereas the larger ones show smaller distances.
