Summary
(1) An appraisal of homogeneity; test of Abbies hypothesis of morphological homogeneity in the Australian Aboriginal population; discrimination analysis shows clinal variation from north to south. (2) The influence of climatic factors; found the direct effect of climatic variation to be small in most cases; interorbital breadth and nose shape the most influenced by climatic conditions. (3) An assessment of diversity; a comparison of Abbies regional and tribal samples with Tindales Barriean, Murrayian and Carpentarian groups; analysis shows that the trihybrid population model is not the principal factor explaining modern variation; climatic effects and random genetic drift as primary determinants
