    (!) Cephalic Index vs. Y-haplogroups in Europe

    Hello everybody,

    Is anybody familiar with any study on the relationship of the Cephalic Index vs. Y-haplogroups in Europe?

    Thank you.

    I think it will be a waste of time to study such a relationship unless u focus on a single region of a country where Y haplogroups could be correlated to the migration of a group from another area and so on. Take a look at R1b for instance, its linked to brachycephaly in Anatolia and Balkans, while its farther branches in Scotland and Ireland or Iberia are dolichocephals. I think mtdna is a better candidate for the cephalic index than ydna.

    The cephalic index could vary from brachy to dolicho and vice-versa over time. It was studied already in the mid XX-th century and from that point the cephalic index was dropped out from most of the study fields. So, yes, don't waste your time with that.

    Thank you.
    Would you be kind to refer to any study you are aware of?

    very simplistic answer for a genetic trait: don't mistake long term collective variations of diverse origins (often cultural, environmental) and genetic basis of individual CI differences - that said, it's evident Y-HG's don't play a big role in this (as in other genetic traits), here I do the same answer as others forumers, it is not very new -
    I wait for true Albanians with a mean CI of 72 as among 1930's Pathans, even now in the 2010's spite the dolichocephalicizing trend -

    There were several studies in the past from which I can recall the study of Franz Boas on Jewish emigrants in America that observed how there was a complete reverse in the cephalic index of the generation born on American soil. Also, there's another study on Czech bone material which states that the medieval Czechs were dolichocephalic and gradually unto XIX century they went through brachycephalization that characterize them now. Another or maybe the same study, stated that the so-called Baltic phenotype was a reduced form of a Nordic prototype, (i.e. from dolicho to brachy). Furthermore there's some information about the brachy processes that happen when a population is living in mountainous area for long time. Also, you can see how the PIE Kurgan people were dolichocephalic cro-magnids and now this type and features almost don't exist.
    So, I am saying that the cephalic index is not a constant and I don't think it correlates well with anything.

    MOESAN, what are you implying? I agree the CI does not correlate with Y-dna and it is something connected to many different things.
