'Beneš J, Huy HP, 1982: Finger Dermatoglyphics in the Vietnamese. Anthropologie (Brno) 20, 3: 215-217'.
Finger prints of 96 Vietnamese (72 men and 24 women) were analysed. In males whorls were found to be of higher frequencies of pattern intensity - males 16.06, females 14.23; Dankmeijer's index - males 2.97, females 3.16; Furuhata's index - males 105.42, females 82.37. The DTRC was found to be in males 158.1 ± 5.50 ridges, in females 140.5 ± 9.5 ridges. Neither bimanual difference nor the bisexual variations were noted. The dermatoglyphic confguration of the Vietnamese as expressed in the Galton patterns and the three principal indices fall within the range of Malaya's ethnic or national groups populating Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand and Laos.
