Anomals and anopes among Beduin of Southern Sinai

A. Adam

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Anomaloscope tests on 212 Beduin of Sinai revealed one extreme protanomal, one simple deuteranomal, five protanopes and three deuteranopes. Thus mild defects in color vision are more rare than among Europeans, but severe colorblindness is just as frequent. It is difficult to fit these data to the hypothesis of relaxed selection.
