    Default why east asian and northern europeans are physically so different?

    i heard in a documentary that east asians are short,almost hairless,very flat cheekbonese,they got fat faces and have that chinky eyes because they have evolved in the cold mountains of Siberia but northern europeans are very tall and have round eyes they are very hairy(pure blondes are hairy) their cheekbones are not flat and they evolved in the coldest region of europe,why are they so different if they have evolved in the same climate?

    Because they are different races...


    In general Northern Europeans have smaller eyes than other Europeans, also Northern Europeans tend to be less hairy than Southern Europeans.


    There is a lot of pyshical variation in Northern Europeans though.

    people living near the arctic tend to be chinky maybe because of sunlight reflecting on ice.
    then maybe migrated downwards like during the ice age where glaicial and polar ice covered much larger regions.

    also maybe because europeans tend to hunt differently than asians which explains the eyes which are deep socketed for euros good for long distance frontal focus vision while asians have wide shallow socket eyes along with a flat nose and face which good for peripheral vision and a much greater degree of side vision.

    well just my guess too...

    Maybe asians evolved in the cold flatlands of east asia and europeans are the only true highlanders...the peripheral vision would be useful more on the lowlands. (shrug)

    Also, maybe it is the result of different admixture from different hominids like erectus and Neandertal.

    Interesting question though!

    Many northerners have sort of more "mongliform" traits compared to southerners

    If we are talking about European "Highlanders" here, compared to Asian highlanders… then that is a whole other story.

    Highlanders in the deep-deep North, in the mountainous cold areas, have no reason to travel East-West, but do have reason to travel North-South (for trading, climate change, and more food/supplies). So I guess there probably is not any massive migration between West and East with respect to the Highlanders.

    Is that what we are referring to here?

    Why do people ask silly questions when they can just read about populations genetics. Here is Cell Biology's 2010 Special Edition.

    watwat, very confusing. I thought many of the northern folk, were supposed to resemble the mongol folk. I guess people can't make up their mind.

    Anyway, when little me was in the army, I noticed one thing. I was a excellent shot in the summer, but during winter I couldn't hit a thing. I believe this was because my eyes froze up, hence I couldn't see a thing.
    I would think a deep set eye would help to keep the eye warmer.

    Though I think I personally have rather deep set eyes, and they still froze up, hrmrm.
