'Vonderach A, 2002: Former AB0 Selection Through Malaria in Northwestern Germany. Anthropologie (Brno) 40, 1: 73-78'.
 
Abstract
The evaluation of the data recorded by Richter (1941) for AB0 and MN in the region of the rivers Elbe and Weser show marked differences between Marsch (marsh) and the Geest (higher, sandy uplands) on the northwest German coast. Particularly the Marsch between the Elbe and Weser deviates with a low frequency of AB0*A and a high frequency of AB0*0. This suggests selection through the Malaria epidemics of earlier centuries. The other serogenetic differences in the Elbe-Weser region reflect the migrational and marital contacts along the Elbe and within the remote Geest and Heide (heath) regions further inland.
