'Das BM, Sengupta S, 1985: Variation in Palmar C Line Termination Polymorphism among some Endogamous Groups of Assam. Anthropologie (Brno) 23, 2: 97-100'.
The present paper deals with the occurence of the palmar C line termination in ten endogamous groups of Assam. The study sample includes 526 unrelated males from Assamese Brahmin, Kalita, Jogi, Kaibarta, Lalung, Mishing, Chutiya, Moran, Deuri and Muslim. The bimanual and population variation concerning the distribution of four types of main line C have been examined in the present report. It is found that the Mongoloid populations differ significantly from each of the high caste, low caste and Muslims, among whom no significant differences are observed. The results of the present study are compared with the available materials from Assam in order to assess the group differences or similarities.
