Anthropological measurements of stature i see in traditional Coon texts are too old and surpassed for actual standards. Why not, new modernized labels ? We could "stabilize" new standards elaborating old labels, of all types, on the basis of all recent data and notions. It would be a little adjournament. What do you think ?

Well, i begin with 4 "general" subraces :



min.-max.
ALPINE : cm. 173-178 / 5'8"-5'10"

NORDIC : cm. 185-190 / 6'1"- 6'3"

DINARIC : cm. 183-188 / 6'- 6'2"

MEDITER.:cm. 170-175 / 5'7"- 5'9"


This, could be an example. Correct me, if i'm wrong.

not that I know a lot of it, but I think this is a bit absurd. I know a lot of nordic guys who or shorter than 185. Even shorter as 180 cm. A vriation of 5 cm is to absurd to be true i think.

Well, it's purely theoric. I try to inspire myself to the "range" swing of major authors. Coon stature-swing, was 8 cm. for example. It's true, many nordics are less than 185 cm., but afterall, it's a kind of "mean".

Hell, I guess the poor creatures who are exactly 179 cm tall are condemned for an anthropological black hole. :P
