Recent Trends in Dermatoglyphic Research : Commemoration Volume in Memory of Late Professor Ramesh Chaube

"Dermatoglyphic features are unaffected by environment and no developmental changes observed except for increased in size and growth of the ridges with the growth of hands. Individual finger and palm print vary from individual to individual with no exceptation of even identical twins. Dermatoglyphics offer a reliable means of criminal identification, disputed paternity, association with diseases, population variability, inheritance, sexual dimorphism and twin diagnosis. This commemorative volume is edited by Dr. Dipak Kumar Adak and Dr. Amamd Murti Mishra to pay homage to their teacger Dr. Ramesh Chaube (30.07.1943 - 28.11.2014). Retired Professor, Deparment of Anthropology, Dr. H. S. Gour University, Sagar, Madhya Pradesh. Late Prof. Chaube devoted his life in advancement of research in the field of dermatoglyphics. Among some noteworthy contributions, he developed a research methodology for the classification of palmar creases in the year 1971, which was accepted internationally and till date it has been in use all over the world. This volume consists of twenty-five chapters contributed by distinguished scientists in the fields of medical science, polulation biology and anthropology. It has three sections. First section focused on methodological perspectives of dermatoglyphics, which consists of six articles. Contributed research papers are on assymmetry of dermatoglyphic traints, inbreeding effects on finger ridge counts, micro-evolutionary trend and classificatory variation in dermatoglyphics, formulation of bracelet creases and incidence of monomorphic finger patterns. The second section consists of five articles on clinical aspects of dermatoglyphics. The authors have reported finger ridge count and `atd' angle in E-B- thalassaemia patients, palmar ridge counts in autistic patients, simian crease and Sydney line in diabetic mellitus patients dermatoglyphic main line in Turner's syndrome and palmar flexion creases in mouth cancer patient. Altogether fourteen articles are included in third section. The authors have portrayed different aspects of dermatoglyphics in population level. This include finger and palmar dermatoglyphic aspects of Kayastha, Tai-Phake, Chakma, Rabha, Brahmin, Hira and Muslims of Assam, Apatani, Monpa, Tagins, Shertukpen and Thingbu-pa of Arunachal Pradesh, Kunbi sub-groups and twenty Dhangar castes of Maharashtra, Gahoi Vaishya and Gond of Madhya Pradesh, Oraon and Kissan of Odisha, tribes of south Gujarat and Christian populations of Mysore city, Karnataka. We hope, various fields of scientists like the biologists, clinicians, forensic scientists, geneticists anthropologists and anatomists will find this book interesting, important and very useful."
