concept that family resemblance might offer a
basis for the prediction of facial growth is examined.
The present results support the view that a number
of cranio-facial features are under polygenic
control but this is not relevant to the prediction
of facial growth. If family resemblance is to
be used for prediction it must be shown that,
with growth, a child becomes more like its parents
in the relevant features. The results of the present
study indicate that this is not the case.
