dc.description.abstractWe studied a sample of 37 dentulous dry mandibles from European wild board (Sus scrofa) and compared both the right and left sides in their dorsal aspect. To study the influence of age, the samples were grouped according to dental status: "subadults" (erupting 3rd M, n=22) and "adults" (fully erupted 3rd M, n=15). Individual levels of asymmetry were analysed from x- and y-coordinates of the 16 landmarks on the dorsal aspect of the mandible. Results. The analysis separated directional asymmetry (one side of the body with a larger character value than the other) and fluctuating asymmetry (small random deviations from perfect symmetry), which were both found to be significant. Conclusion. The condylar ramus was the most asymmetric structure for both age groups.
