Abstract The influence of climatic-geographic factors on the Russians of Western and Eastern Siberia and on the Buryats of Eastern Siberia was investigated. A comparison of important ecotypological characteristics such as body mass index and topography of subcutaneous adipose tissue confirmed better adaptability in the Russian males than the females to the stressful influence of the severe continental climate of Eastern Siberia. It suggests the possibility that the “conservatism” of the female gene pool can lead to chronic stress caused by incomplete adaptation to the influence of a severe continental climate.
