'Malhotra R, 1984: Polymorphism: With Reference to Simian Crease amongst Two Himalayan Endogamous Groups. Anthropologie (Brno) 22, 1: 31-34'.
The association of simian crease is well established with Mongolism and chromosomal aberations. Also variation in its incidence has been recorded in different populations. The present paper is basically aimed to report the incidence of simian crease in two endogamous groups namely Rajputs and Harijans from Rampur Bushahr, Himachal Pradesh (INDIA). The total data of 188 individuals was categorised as per Bhanu's (1973) classifications. Only characters like bimanual symmetry, sexual dimorphism and bilateral variation have been accounted for. The results have also been compared with some other Mongoloid populations.
