Somatoscopic traits of human

Česky English

ears - location of the auricle on the head

We evaluate this trait from a frontal view of a human head in Frankfurt horizontal plane. We observe how far does the top of the auricle reach with regard to the face. The trait has three developmental degrees: 1. low (the auricle apex does not reach the nasion point), 2. moderately high (the auricle apex reaches the nasion point), 3. high (the auricle apex protrudes over the nasion point).
