'Ghosh GC, 1981: Variability of Palmar Triradii in Twelve Central Indian Populations. Anthropologie (Brno) 19, 3: 243-246'.

The number of palmar triradii, which to a larger extent indicates intensity of palmar patterns, has been studied on twelve Central Indian populations. It suggests a general homogeneity of the populations under study with, relatively larger values of palmar triradii in comparison to other Indian populations. There appears to be no consistent direction of sex differences but it strongly suggests sinisteral excess of palmar triradii in each sex.
