Özet

Introduction: Stature is a significant biological profile for evaluating growth and development of an individual. It also provides important evidence in the forensic investigation process to the establishment of personal identification. Stature shows considerable variation between individuals. In situations where stature cannot be measured, different substitute parameters can be used to determine the stature. Arm span measurement has been demonstrated to be the best predictor of stature.
