Abstract or Summary
  • Kelso's theory of Biocultural Evolution states that as culture evolves, the variation between groups diminishes while the variation within groups increases. The theory is tested with stature, cephalic index and nasal index. Means and standard deviations for these traits are examined for 237 ethnic groups. The groups are organized according to their stage of social organization: band, tribe, chiefdom and state. The theory is not verified for polygenic inheritance. Problems in the investigation of biocultural evolution are discussed.
