Figure 1: Growth trajectories in Baka pygmies.

From: Growth pattern from birth to adulthood in African pygmies of known age

Figure 1

(a) Growth in weight during period A. (b) Growth in weight during period B. (c) Growth in height during period B. (d) Changes in BMI during growth. Growth trajectories show low residual standard deviations (RSD) and are different for boys (solid lines) and girls (dashed lines). Growth spurt in weight and height are clearly observable during adolescence and steady dimension are reached from 18 to 19 years in girls and 20 to 22 years in boys. T.O.: pubertal weight/height gain spurt, P.V.: peak weight/height growth velocity; BMI, body mass index.
