Abstract

The form of the hair follicle has been exarnined in some human isolates. There is no relationship between follicular structure and hair form, that is, similar hair forms may be the end product of different follicular structures. Such diversity means that it is not possible to use hair form as an indicator of human relationships. The usefulness of follicular structure as such an indicator must await a much wider sampling from an extensive variety of human isolates.
