The mechanism of inheritance of ridge count of palmar interdigital areas has been studied among Brahmans of Sagar town of Central India.

The correlation coefficients between ridge counts in various family relationships lend support to the concept of an additive genetic model, especially for the b-c or second interdigital area.
