• variation
  • His research focuses on forensic anthropology, skeletal biology, dermatoglyphics, anthropometry, anthropological genetics, and human variation, as well as developing computerized databases in these areas which aid in anthropological research. (wikipedia.org)
  • applications
  • At various times in history, applications of anthropometry have ranged vastly-from accurate scientific description and epidemiological analysis to rationales for eugenics and overtly racist social movements-and its points of concern have been numerous, diverse, and sometimes highly unexpected.

  • Body
  • Electrical bioimpedance was measured in 7 body segments, and also with the standard right-side method, using 11 electrodes at 6 different frequencies in 8 healthy male subjects with similar anthropometry. (upc.edu)
  • We investigated in 73 male ultraendurance mountain bikers, with (mean and SD) age 39.1 (8.6) years, weight 74.4 (8.3) kg, height 1.78 (0.07) m, and a body mass index of 23.3 (1.9) kg·m⁻², whether variables of anthropometry, training, or prerace experience were associated with race time using bi and multivariate analysis.

  • Race
  • We concluded that finishing a particular mountain bike ultramarathon does not seem to require a special anthropometry but rather a specific skill and experience for this selective kind of race coupled with a high training volume. (uzh.ch)
  • rather
  • For practical use, we concluded that successful athletes in a mountain bike ultramarathon, in a special environment and using sophisticated equipment, need prerace experience coupled with high training volume, rather than any special anthropometry. (uzh.ch)
  • Field
  • Alphonse Bertillon (1853-1914) is considered to be the father of anthropometry because of his many contributions to the field, including what we know today as the "mug shot. (wikipedia.org)
