yeah, I worded it poorly. I meant haplotypes with lineage linked to latitudes furthest from the equator show tendency towards bone growth plates staying open well past the worldwide average. And the inverse for groups/haplotypes with lineage/history near the equator....they grow tall at a young age and their bones tend to be at full maturity sooner (16-18).

So in summary, I don't think Biyombo will be Mutumbo's height in 2013.
