气候会影响人的身高吗?

有证据表明气候可能影响人类身高, 但效果小且不一致. 一般来说, 较高的人出现在较冷的气候中,而较矮的人通常出现在较温暖的气候中. This may be because tall people have more body heat than short people do, and cold weather can suppress this heat.

It has also been shown that there is a correlation between latitude and average heights around the world. This suggests that taller individuals tend to live closer to the equator where it’s warm year-round whereas shorter individuals cluster near the poles where it gets cold periodically. While these findings are interesting, they do not prove that climate affects human height directly or consistently.
