Barta, Dr. Jodi Lynn, U. of Toronto, Mississauga, Canada - To aid research on 'The Relationship Between Skin Pigmentation and Vitamin D Insufficiency in Northern Latitudes'

DR. JODI LYNN BARTA, University of Toronto, Mississauga, Canada, received funding in October 2007 to aid research on 'The Relationship between Skin Pigmentation and Vitamin D Insufficiency in Northern Latitudes.' This project examined the effects that changes in season have on vitamin D concentrations in individuals with varying levels of melanin in their skin in order to clarify the relationship between constitutive pigmentation and vitamin D status in otherwise healthy young adults of diverse ancestry living in northern latitudes.

Project Title: 
Astorino, Claudia Marie, City U. of New York, Lehman College, New York, NY - To aid research on 'Does Human Sex Indicator Morphology in the Skull Co-vary With Age and Ancestry?,' supervised by Dr. Eric Delson

Preliminary abstract: While it is generally accepted that levels of human sexual dimorphism (HSD) vary across geographic populations, few systematic studies have attempted to quantify how age and ancestry influence population-specific ranges of variation. This study will determine if and how the expression of sexually dimorphic traits in the skull co-varies with age and ancestry both within and among contemporary human populations. Gaining a greater understanding of HSD ranges is integral to testing hypotheses about modern human variation and the hominin fossil record.
