Abstract

Forty-six pedigrees involving 341 consanguineous marriages with 1618 children were collected from a Nadar village of Madurai district,  Tamilnadu and their coefficient of inbreeding was computed. Seventeen mating types with high incidence of patri-lateral cross-cousin marriages were observed.  The occurrence of dead children in two series differed significantly. The selection intensity with its two components has also been estimated which appears to be low.
