Abstract

Infracranial nonmetric variations have been considered for determining population distance between different regions and continents, in recent times. We studied different infracranial nonmetric traits from the Dakshina Kannada (South India) region to compare with the data available from the Gujarati (North India) region. The mean measure of divergence between the two different geographic regions showed significant variation. In our study, the incidence like i) Allen's fossa of the femur, ii) plaque formation in the upper end of the femur, iii) exostosis in trochanteric fosse of femur, iv) third trochanter of femur, v) os trigonum of talus, vi) medial talar facet, vii) peroneal tubercle of calcaneus, viii) bipartite transverse foramen in the cervical vertebra, too showed significant side difference.
