Abstract
Ten endogamous population groups of West Bengal (India) — Rabhas, Garos, Mechs, Rajbanshis, Jalia Kaibartas, Bagdis, Lodhas, Mundas, Brahmins, Vaidyas — have been typed for twelve polymorphic systems: AB0, Gm, Km, Hp, Cp, Tf, Alb, Hb, aP, EsD, AK and PGM1. The results are compared with those obtained on other Indian populations. Serological and anthropometric data, which have been included into population comparisons, reveal a considerable genetic variability of the groups under study. This variability is obviously connected with the population history of West Bengal.

An zehn endogamen Bevölkerungsgruppen aus West Bengalen (Indien) — Rabhas, Garos, Mechs, Rajbanshis, Jalia Kaibartas, Bagdis, Lodhas, Mundas, Brahmins, Vaidyas — wurden zwölf polymorphe Systeme untersucht: ABO, Gm, Km, Hp, Cp, Tf, Alb, Hb, aP, EsD, AK and PGM1. Die Ergebnisse wurden mit denen an anderen indischen Populationen gewonnenen verglichen. Serologische und vorliegende anthropometrische Daten lassen eine erhebliche genetische Variabilität zwischen den untersuchten Populationen erkennen, welche in engem Zusammenhang mit der Bevölkerungsgeschichte West-Bengalens steht.
