Abstract

From rolled fingerprints of 646 males belonging to nine endogamous groups of Maharashtra, India, the intra-and interpopulation variability is studied by considering three traits: Total finger ridge count (TFRC), absolute total finger ridge count (ATFRC) and finger pattern intensity index (FPII). Complete distributions are reported for the three major clusters: Five caste Hindus, three tribes, and the Parsees. Dermatoglyphic distances computed by Mahalanobis’ D-are compared with genetic distances.
