Somatoscopic traits of human

Česky English

ears - tragus size

We evaluate this trait from the profile view of the head in Frankfurt horizontal plane. We assess the degree of protrusion of tragus over the outer auditory canal entrance. The trait has three developmental degrees: 1. small (poorly formed tragus does not protrude above the auditory canal entrance), 2. moderate (the tragus partially protrudes over the outer auditory canal entrance), 3. large (a large tragus covers the outer auditory canal to a great extent).
