Library stamps/marks/labels/pocket, light spine sun, otherwise light wear. Solid hardcover.; Originally presented as the author's thesis (Ph. D.)--University of Wisconsin, 1967. 40 tables, 13 text illustrations, 56 photographic illustrations on plates. "The three objectives of this study are: (1) to describe and characterize the dental variation in skeletal population samples of Aleuts, Eskimos, and northern Indians; (2) to provide an interpretation of the dental variation between Aleutian groups; and (3) to make estimates, where possible, for the modes of inheritance of non-metrical dental features, and compute the gene frequency of the same. With the aid of the dental characterizations and the inheritance models preliminary estimates can be made regarding the degree of similarity between Aleuts, Eskimos, and Indians, the amount of presumed white admixture in living east and west Aleuts (and Koniag Eskimos), and the stability or lack of it in dental trait frequencies in the divisions of the Aleutian population." - Introduction. ; The Evolution of the North American Indians; Ex-Library; xiv, 281 pages.
