Abstract

Introduction/Aim: It is known that environmental and genetic factors play a role in skeletal development and maturity, although recently the influence of childhood nutrition on growth is of increasing interest. This study examines previously unexamined anthropometrical data obtained from remote regions remote regions between 1968-1983. Recent advances in computing technology has allowed precise measurements to be completed on skeletal X-rays and data collected between to identify variations in growth parameters of females living in Papua New Guinea (PNG) and Australia. In PNG populations, a major difference between studied subpopulations was their restricted nutritional intake. Highlanders (Bundi village) diet consisted predominantly of vegetables (sweet potato) and rice. Coastal areas (Pari village) also consumed vegetables and rice, but had increased protein intakes from fishing and farming. The aim of this study was to examine anthropometrical data obtained from 11-year old females living in these two distinct regions of PNG, and compare these to Australian females.
