'Perzigian AJ, 1984: Human Odontometric Variation: An Evolutionary and Taxonomic Assessment. Anthropologie (Brno) 22, 3: 193-198'.
An analysis of biological distances based on human denial size and shape was performed. Phenetic distances expressed by Penrose generalized distance, size, and shape coefficients were computed from permanent crown measurements (mesiodistal and buccolingual) from 42 samples which ranged from prehistoric to modern. A cluster analysis demonstrated that size coefficients basically reflect technocultural development (e.g. hunting/gathering versus agriculture) while shape coefficients bassically reflect known taxonomic, biohistoric associations.
