This paper is about the differences of digit ratio in two human populations from two localities. These localities are: Oradea and Simleu, from Bihor and Salaj counties. Oradea is a locality with over two hundred thousands of inhabitants, which means the variability of some phenotipical features must be a large one. Simleu is a smaller locality (has under fifty thousands inhabitants), which means the variability of some phenotipical features is lower than in Oradea. This fact is showed in our study. We investigated 100 females in each locality. It were measured the lenghts of the digits 2, 3 and 4, and then we made the digit ratio. The results are important: the digit lenghts are very different in the two localities; the 2D:4D digit ratio, too.
