No!! It s climate adaption. You see it also in italy as you move along..north white pinkish skin! hair mousy brown (not intense) with a wheat undertone in all the shades of hair..and fine hair.

South more curly hair, "tanned skin", intense brown hair.

If this guy moves to a tropical country, is he going to evolve and he will get dark, lose the freckles and the red hair? And guess where he is from?
25% of the mexicans are as white as canelo - the majority though look like mix of spanish + "indians".
nothing shocking about it. Just like in europe not all bulgaro-romanians are gypsys, neither all british are black, nor all germans are blond, etc. despite the popular stereotypes.

Wait Julia, did you study something about genetic and evolution at school? Mendel, Darwin and so on?

The logic behind some of your posts (someone move in a new area, he adapts to the new condition and then he transmits his modification to his sons) remind me to the Lamarckism, Lamarckism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia that is an old and abandoned theory.

The modern evolution theories are based on the Darwin theory, and so on the idea of the random insurgence of new phenotypic characters and the selection of the most useful ones with the natural selection.

Evolution - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

At the end the effect could also be an adaptation to new climatic conditions, but it is not a process that could be observed in few generations...

Neither do I. I study chemistry (that is a scientific subject too, but a completely different field). But I studied something about evolution and genetic at the high school during biology lessons, and so did my sister. So I thought that it was in the high school ministerial programs.

If the normal skin colour of Europeans is III on the Fitzpatrick scale, why are Swedes and Finns also in this category? Shouldn't the I or II types be more common? I don't know what truth it holds, but according to saxonwold only 2% of Swedes have type I skin colour, while 10% of the French have it.

Julia I'm sorry but you're spouting complete nonsense! Peoples skin tones have everything to do with their genetics and nothing to do with which country they live in!

Well..climate adaption still starts to play after two generation . I think.

Now i lo searchid fotos of blacks of This generation leaving in northern europe..and you will ser the ir skin is lighter for adaptive climating.

These are lighter than if they were born at the equator.
