Skin Color - Panel 5
::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Full Text Panels 1-18

This panel presents skin color distributions across the world, explainable, as was true of height, as adaptation to different environments. Two cross sections of skin, one light, the other dark, show that their difference in color is due solely to the quantity of one and the same underlying pigment, namely, melanin. The large variations in skin color in the world today is illustrated by only four populations whose lightness/darkness spans the entire gamut of possible human skin colors.
