Lack of secular change in male adult stature in rural Mali (West Africa)

, : Lack of secular change in male adult stature in rural Mali (West Africa). American Journal of Physical Anthropology 75(4): 471-475

A study has been carried out on a sample of 2,158 male subjects between 20 and 50 years old representative of the rural Malian population (West Africa), and the results are compared with historic data obtained since 1885. This comparison suggests that there has been no modification in stature during this century. The analysis of each ethnic group does not show any disparity. Our results are in agreement with the theory that certain factors lead to the secular increase of stature in developed countries. These etiologic factors are not found in our West African population.
