    Post Taxonomy of the Homo Sapiens

    Here the racial classification of the whole mankind by Egon von Eickstedt. I made some additions and slipped some modifications from newer works into it, especially at the point of the Altrassen: Eickstedt counted Australomelanesids, Weddids and so on to the Negrids. But this theory cannot be adhered to, at best a nearer connection of the Altrassen in Southern Africa (Khoisanids) is probably. Nevertheless, I excluded all Altrassen who cannot be directly counted to Europids, Negrids or Mongolids and summed them up at the end.

    I kept Eickstedt's race names in German. It's no problem to "translate" them (Zentralide - Centralids ...). Just note that the ending e is the German plural form, so Europide are Europids and so on.


    In Europe:

    I. Northern belt of the depigmented forms:
    1.) Nordide (sub-formes: Teutonordide, Dalonordide, Fennonordide)
    2.) Osteuropide

    II. Central belt of the brachycephals (mountain races belt; continued in Asia):
    1.) Alpinide (Eickstedt counts the Lappide as a pushed aside form of the Alpinids, but that's quite doubtful)
    2.) Dinaride

    III. Southern belt of the dark dolichocephals (brown races belt; continued in Asia):

    In Asia:

    I. Brachycephal belt:
    1.) Armenide (sub-form: Anadolide)
    2.) Turanide (europid-mongolid contact race)

    II. Dark dolichocephal belt:

    1.) Orientalide
    2.) Indide (sub-forms: Nordindide, Grazilindide, Indobrachide)


    In Asia:

    1.) Tungide
    2.) Sinide (sub-forms: Nordsinide, Mittelsinide, Südsinide)
    3.) Palämongolide (sub-formes: Palaungide, Neside)
    4.) Sibiride (sub-formes: Westsibiride [old mongolid-europid contact race?], Ostsibiride)

    In America:

    I. Eskimide (race of the arctis of America and Greenland)

    II. Indianide:
    1.) Pazifide (inhabitants of the Pacific North-Western coast)
    2.) Silvide (North American Wood [and Prairie] Indian)
    3.) Margide (North American margin and rest race)
    4.) Zentralide (original inhabitants of Central America)
    5.) Andide (the highland race of the Andes)
    6.) Pampide (=Patagonide; the steppe race of the Pampas: Patagonians and relatives)
    7.) Brasilide (in the jungle of Brazil, the Northern savannah and the Antilles)
    8.) Lagide (race of Lagóa Santa: in Southern savannah and retreat areas; sub-form: Fuegide)


    I. Negrid-Europid contact zone:

    II. Bush and savannah zone (neo-Negrid arch of grassland Negroes):
    1.) Nilotide ("knee" of the arch)
    2.) Sudanide (neo-Negrid Northern wing)
    3.) Kafride (=Bantuide; neo-Negrid Southern wing)

    III. Rain forest zone:


    In Africa:

    I. Bambutide (=Pygmide; African Pygmies)

    II. Khoisanide: (sub-forms: Khoide, Sanide)

    In Asia:

    I. Ainuide

    II. Weddide (contact race of Australo-Melanesid old stratum with younger Europids?); ((Indo-)Melanide: Weddid-Europid contact form)

    III. Negritide (Negritos; sub-forms: Andamanide, Semangide, Aetide)

    IV. Australomelaneside:
    1.) Australide (sub-form: Tasmanide? Or: splinter group of the Palaemelanesids?)
    2.) Melaneside (sub-forms: Palämelaneside, Neomelaneside, Tapiride [? - Perhaps only a local type of the Neomelanesids])

    V. Polyneside (Europid-Mongolid-Melanesid contact race? Or: Melanesid-Mongolid contact race?)

    Exclamation Main genetically dintinguishable divisions


    1) Bowcock et al. [7] observed that the 14 populations clustered into the five continental groups, as depicted in Figure 1. The African branch included three sub-Saharan populations, CAR pygmies, Zaire pygmies, and the Lisongo; the Caucasian branch included Northern Europeans and Northern Italians; the Pacific Islander branch included Melanesians, New Guineans and Australians; the East Asian branch included Chinese, Japanese and Cambodians; and the Native American branch included Mayans from Mexico and the Surui and Karitiana from the Amazon basin. The identical diagram has since been derived by others, using a similar or greater number of microsatellite markers and individuals [8,9]. More recently, a survey of 3,899 SNPs in 313 genes based on US populations (Caucasians, African-Americans, Asians and Hispanics) once again provided distinct and non-overlapping clustering of the Caucasian, African-American and Asian samples [12]: "The results confirmed the integrity of the self-described ancestry of these individuals". Hispanics, who represent a recently admixed group between Native American, Caucasian and African, did not form a distinct subgroup, but clustered variously with the other groups. A previous cluster analysis based on a much smaller number of SNPs led to a similar conclusion: "A tree relating 144 individuals from 12 human groups of Africa, Asia, Europe and Oceania, inferred from an average of 75 DNA polymorphisms/individual, is remarkable in that most individuals cluster with other members of their regional group" [13]. Effectively, these population genetic studies have recapitulated the classical definition of races based on continental ancestry - namely African, Caucasian (Europe and Middle East), Asian, Pacific Islander (for example, Australian, New Guinean and Melanesian), and Native American.

    2) Most recently, Wilson et al. [2] studied 354 individuals from 8 populations deriving from Africa (Bantus, Afro-Caribbeans and Ethiopians), Europe/Mideast (Norwegians, Ashkenazi Jews and Armenians), Asia (Chinese) and Pacific Islands (Papua New Guineans). Their study was based on cluster analysis using 39 microsatellite loci. Consistent with previous studies, they obtained evidence of four clusters representing the major continental (racial) divisions described above as African, Caucasian, Asian, and Pacific Islander. The one population in their analysis that was seemingly not clearly classified on continental grounds was the Ethiopians, who clustered more into the Caucasian group. But it is known that African populations with close contact with Middle East populations, including Ethiopians and North Africans, have had significant admixture from Middle Eastern (Caucasian) groups, and are thus more closely related to Caucasians [14]. Furthermore, the analysis by Wilson et al. [2] did not detect subgroups within the four major racial clusters (for example, it did not separate the Norwegians, Ashkenazi Jews and Armenians among the Caucasian cluster), despite known genetic differences among them. The reason is clearly that these differences are not as great as those between races and are insufficient, with the amount of data provided, to distinguish these subgroups.

    I havn't got the technical equipment to post here picture stuff from me.

    Hell, am I the only one here who has got Eickstedt's book?

    I put this link about von Eickstedt which I saw in the Andaman link of Euclides into here, just as an interesting biographical information, though the text is "critical" against v. E. and race science generally.
