    Geographical Variation and Migration Analysis of Height, Weight and Body Mass Index in a British Cohort Study.Monika Krzyżanowska & C. G. Nicholas Mascie-Taylor - 2011 - Journal of Biosocial Science 43 (6):733-749.
    SummaryUsing a sample of 2090 father and son pairs, the regional variation in height, weight and body mass index with intra- and inter-generational migration within Britain was examined. Highly significant regional differences in means were found only for fathers. The overall mean height difference between regions ranged from about 2.7 cm to 3.1 cm, with the tallest fathers being found in the East & South-East region and the shortest in Wales. The variation in mean weight between regions was less significant, (...)

    Biosocial Correlates of Stature in a 16-Year-Old British Cohort.Thomas R. Terrell & C. G. N. Mascie-Taylor - 1991 - Journal of Biosocial Science 23 (4):401-408.
    Analyses of the height variation of 16-year-old members of the British National Child Development Study revealed a number of biological and social variables which associated with stature. After multiple regression analyses only eight variables, namely social class, family size, tenure , crowding status, number of children sleeping in the bed, region of the country, sex of child, and pubic hair rating, remained significant. The total variation explained by these biosocial variables was 37·5%.

    Biosocial Correlates of Stature in a British National Cohort.C. G. N. Mascie-Taylor & G. W. Lasker - 2005 - Journal of Biosocial Science 37 (2):245-251.
    Analyses of height variation using the 1970 UK national cohort study (12,508 children at age 10 and 5470 at age 16) found clear evidence that children of higher socioeconomic status (as measured by social class, crowding, tenure, type of accommodation, income and receipt of government financial assistance) were on average taller than children of lower socioeconomic status but there was little or no difference in average stature between children living in urban or rural areas. Significant differences in height remained for (...)

    Isonymy and the Structure of the Provençal-Italian Ethnic Minority.G. Biondi, A. Vienna, J. A. Peña Garcia & C. G. N. Mascie-Taylor - 2005 - Journal of Biosocial Science 37 (2):163-174.
    Surnames were obtained for the second half of the 20th century from civil and religious marriage registers on fifteen Provençal-Italian and five Italian villages of Cuneo Province, Italy. To insert in the analysis an outward comparison, surnames from two Italian villages of Turin Province, one parish of Turin, one village of Alessandria Province and one village of Asti Province were also collected. Ethnicity does not seem to be the main factor affecting the present genetic structure of the Provençal-Italians. They are (...)

    Impact of Social Mobility and Geographical Migration on Variation in Male Height, Weight and Body Mass Index in a British Cohort.Monika Krzyżanowska & C. G. Nicholas Mascie-Taylor - 2012 - Journal of Biosocial Science 44 (2):221-228.
    SummaryUsing a sample of 2090 British father and son pairs the relationships between social and geographical intra- and inter-generational mobility were examined in relation to height, weight and body mass index. There was much more social mobility than geographical migration. Social mobility and geographical migration were not independent: socially non-mobile fathers and sons were more likely to be geographical non-migrants, and upwardly socially mobile fathers and sons were more likely to be regional migrants. Upwardly socially mobile fathers and sons were, (...)

    Consanguinity and its Relationship to Differential Fertility and Mortality in the Kotia: A Tribal Population of Andhra Pradesh, India.Yasmin Naidu & C. G. N. Mascie-Taylor - 1997 - Journal of Biosocial Science 29 (2):171-180.
    Data on patterns of marriage, differential fertility and mortality were collected from 211 Kotia women residing in Visakhapatnam district of Andhra Pradesh, India. Consanguineous marriages made up just over a quarter of the total, and of these, father's sister's daughter (FSD) were more common than mother's brother's daughter (MBD). The mean inbreeding coefficient for the sample (F) was 0·0172. Women in consanguineous marriages had a lower mean number of total conceptions, live births and living offspring (net fertility) than women in (...)

    Genetic Structure Through Surnames in Campobasso Province, Italy.G. Biondi, P. Raspe & C. G. N. Mascie-Taylor - 2000 - Journal of Biosocial Science 32 (4):459-465.
    The population of Campobasso Province shows a level of inbreeding that is distinct from most Italian rural populations, regardless of their geographic location (Fr=0·0040; Fn=0·0102; Ft=0·0142). The genetic structure of the ItalianGreeks of Reggio Calabria Province is similar to other Italians of Campobasso Province (Fr=0·0041; Fn=0·0127; Ft=0·0168). The Italian–Greeks of Lecce Province show random mating, and their inbreeding is in fact very low (Fr=0·0038; Fn=0·0024; Ft=0·0062).

    The Ethnic Minorities of Southern Italy and Sicily: Relationships Through Surnames.A. Vienna, J. A. Peña Garcia, C. G. N. Mascie-Taylor & G. Biondi - 2001 - Journal of Biosocial Science 33 (1):25-31.
    Surnames of grandparents were collected from children in the primary schools of the AlbanianItalian and Greek–Italian villages of southern Italy and Sicily. The coefficients of relationships by isonymy show almost no relationship with ethnicity. Ethnolinguistic minorities of southern Italy and Sicily are geographically subdivided into two main clusters: the first cluster comprises the Albanian, Croat and Greek communities of the Adriatic area; and the second cluster comprises the Albanian and Greek communities of the Ionian, Thirrenian and Sicilian areas.

    Biosocial Correlates of Inter-Generational Social Mobility in a British Cohort.Monika Krzyżanowska & C. G. Nicholas Mascie-Taylor - 2013 - Journal of Biosocial Science 45 (4):481-496.
    SummaryThe relationship between inter-generational social mobility of sons and daughters between 1958 and 1991 and biosocial variables, i.e. birth order, number of children in family, father's social class, region, educational attainment of child and father, educational and cognitive test scores, was studied in a large British cohort study. The data used were collected as part of the British National Child Development Study. The extent of social class mobility was determined inter-generationally and was categorized as none, upwardly mobile or downwardly mobile. (...)

    Endemic Disease, Nutrition and Fertility in Developing Countries.C. G. N. Mascie-Taylor - 1992 - Journal of Biosocial Science 24 (3):355-365.
    The two main ways in which disease and nutrition can influence fertility are by reducing fecundity or by extending the birth interval. Fecundity refers to reproductive ability, that is the potential to breed, as compared to fertility which denotes actual childbearing . Reduced fecundity, which is usually referred to as subfecundity, results from impairment of any of the biological aspects of reproduction, including coital inability, conceptive failure as well as pregnancy loss. Subfecundity is only one factor operating to reduce fertility; (...)
