The object of this study is that it can provide the foundation from macroscopic aspect for air-force leading department about body type characteristic of active service aircrewmen and direct to select pilots, exercise and collocate meals.
Individual characteristics of somatotype and skeletal muscle power in girls in the age period from 7 to 11
The girls demonstrated a 2.5-time more stable somatotype than boys.
A longitudinal study of the formation of somatotype and its influence on the rates of body growth and maturation was conducted with 100 subjects between three- to seven-years-old and 68 subjects between seven- to ten-years-old.
When the somatotype was stable, these rates were lowest in the subjects of the asthenoid type (according to Shtefko) and highest in those of the digestive type.
The immune status with suppressed T-cell immunity was associated with the mesomorphic axis of the somatotype and the expression of B-cell immunity was associated with the endomorphic axis of the somatotype.
These changes occurred only within the dolichomorphic and brachymorphic groups without transitions between somatotypes.
The report is based on the results of an 11-year longitudinal study on the age-dependent changes in the muscular working capacity in 7-to 17-year-old boys and girls with different somatotypes.
(1973), the somatotypes ina Spanish school-age population were determined.
In Study 1, back-posed figures of mesomorphic (muscular) somatotypes were rated as most attractive, followed by average, ectomorphic (slim), and endomorphic (heavily built) figures by both British and Sri Lankan women.
In Study 2, computer morphing of somatotypes to produce an intergraded series resulted in a graded response in terms of perceived attractiveness which mirrored the findings of Study 1.
To receive habitus accurately and to obtain the reorganization and decision information of the object fully, spatial and temporal fusion must be taken into account.
Habitus Diversity of Ladybirds (Coleoptera, Coccinellidae) in the Steppe Zone of the Southern Urals and the South of Western Sib
In the ladybird fauna of the steppe zone of the Southern Urals and the south of Western Siberia, five variants, three forms, and two habitus types of adult beetles are distinguished, and their hierarchy is established.
The habitus diversity of ladybirds is revealed using a new method of describing each form in a polar system of coordinates whose center coincides with the center of gravity of the insect body.
The system of ladybird habitus reflects the main directions of trophic specialization in the family.
