    Katrin Schaefer
    Department of Anthropology, University of Vienna, Vienna, Austria
    Coll Antropol 29:415-9. 2005
    ..These preliminary results suggest that prenatal and pubertal testosterone have differential effects on male facial shape that should be considered in future studies on women's preferences towards male facial appearance...
  5. ncbi request reprint Secular trends in the facial skull from the 19th century to the present, analyzed with geometric morphometrics
    Erwin Jonke
    Vienna University Clinic of Dentistry, Department of Orthodontics, Medical University of Vienna, Vienna, Austria

    ..Over the last 100 years, Austrian facial form has changed for various reasons, including changes in growth pattern, changes in shape pattern, or a combination of these. In this study, we explored and contrasted these 2 explanations...
