REXHEPI, Agron M  and  BRESTOVCI, Behlul. Neurocranial Morphology of the Albanian Kosovo Population. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2014, vol.32, n.1, pp.97-100. ISSN 0717-9502.

The purpose of this research publication in reference to the morphological features of the head of a Kosovo Albanian population takes us one step further toward studying the anthropological status of Kosovo Albanian population. Three cephalofacial variables were measured in 754 Kosovo subjects, between 18-35 years of age, 561 male and 193 female. The categorization of the head size of the treated subjects was done based on the head length (G-Op), head width (Eu-Eu), and head height (V-Po), according to the Lebzelter-Saler scale (head length and width) and Routil scale (head height). Results show that the head of the male subjects was characterized by long (50.1%), large (49.7%) and medium high head (46%), whereas, female subjects was characterized by a medium long (50.3%), medium large (50.8%) and low head type (41%). In general, the morphologic results of the head, match the results of the other authors, who found similarities between the morphologic features of the Dinaric type (Iliric) and Albanian population.

Keywords : Head length; Head width; Head height; Dinaric; Iliric.
