Mehrai, Haideh (1979) A skin colour survey in three adjacent areas in Mazandaran, North Iran. Masters thesis, Durham University.
The main objective of this paper was to present skin colour data from few populations residing in the coastal province of Mazandaran, N. Iran. Statistical analysis was used to examine sexual dimorphism in the melanin concentration of the epidermis. The male and female samples were each classified into different age groups, to observe for any variation in reflectance in association with pubertal hormonal changes. Finally the present data was compared with seven other neighboring populations to examine the genetic homo and heterogeneity within these populations.
