    Abstract

    Forensic scientists and anthropologists have for a long time been concerned with practicable and reliable methods for estimating stature from bone dimensions. There are several rather reliable equations and tables for the estimation of adult stature, mostly from long limb bone lengths [1]; notable in this regard are those of Telkka [2], Trotter and Gleser [3,4], and Dupertuis and Hadden [5].
