Dear Biomch-L subcribers,

I am looking for information describing the human body segment proportions as they
relate to varying heights(population distributions, not growth changes). Do some
segments/limbs change more than others as hight increases? Do segments/limbs grow
proportionally to each other and to overall height? Would this be the same in Women and
Men?

I have our University online journals, the www, and Bioech-L archives, using terms like:
anthropometry, anthropometry & proportions, anthropometry & segments, body &
proportions, body & segments, ergonomics, ergonomics & body & segments, and possibly a
few others.

Thank you in advance for your help.
