The physical growth of high altitude Bolivian Aymara children



The physical growth of high altitude Bolivian Aymara children



American Journal of Physical Anthropology 52(3): 377-385



The growth characteristics of Aymara children living in Ancoraimes, Bolivia at altitudes between 3800 and 4000 m are described. Anthropometric measurements were made on 510 children between the ages of 6.0-20.9 yr 360 males and 150 females. The growth pattern of Ancoraimes Aymara children is very similar to that of other high altitude Andean populations.
