Abstract

ROTHHAMMER, Francisco  and  COCILOVO, José A. CRANIAL MICRODIFFERENTIATION IN THE COAST OF ARICA AND AZAPA VALLEY OF NORTHERN CHILE: SUMMARY OF RESULTS AND CONCLUSIONS. Chungará (Arica) [online]. 2008, vol.40, n.especial, pp.309-315. ISSN 0717-7356.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73562008000300007.

Recently, Sutter and Mertz (2004) studying non metric cranial traits in prehistoric groups from northem Chile were unable tofind significant variation from the coastal Archaic to the Late Intermedíate in the Azapa Valley in contrast with our findings which indícate the exlstence of an Important mlcroevolutlonary process. The objects of thls study Is to provlde an explanatlon for the observed dlscrepancy between our results and those of Sutter and Mertz (2004), to comment on the new results of Sutter (2006) In an effort to enrlch the dlscusslon concemlng the prehistoric populatlon dynamlcs of the Azapa valley reglón and to summerlze findings In order to achieve a synthesls. In order to accomplish these goals It was found convenlent to perform a comparative analysls of cranial metrical and non metrical variation of the prehistoric groups on whlch publlshed Inferences were based, as well as an evaluatlon ofthe statlstlcal methodology employed by the above mentían authors.

Keywords : Cranlometric and non metric variation; mlcroevolutlon; Azapa Valley; South Central Andes.
