Caspian race

Caspian race is a term historically used in scientific racism as one of the sub-races of the Caucasian race.[1][2] The term was popular in the early 20th century. The Caspian subtype is considered as a branch of the Mediterranean race or Iranid race.[3]

The Caspian race was said to correspond to the other ancient ethnic formation of the southeast, which is represented in the present Tats and Azerbaijanis whose ethnic type is subjected to essential linguist changes.[4]

The phenotype has been said to be prevalent to amongst following ethnicities: Azerbaijanis, Kumyks and Tsakhurs.[5][6] Genrietta Leonidovna Khit states that as a form of racial admixture the Caspian subtype is represented among; Kurds, Turkmens and Talyshs.[7][3]
