    Also it is not actually chromosomes that define the eye colour. It is genes. I also think blue eyes were the recessive gene not quite sure I am certain any biologist can take you through this quite easily.
    Eye colour is polygenic, so it's not a case of simple dominant/recessive trait analysis. Having said that brown does *usually* dominate blue, but eye colour demonstrates 'penetrance' - almost like being 'leaky'.

    Before making such a project out of this you really need to do a lot more research. You should have easily been able to find, on the net, how eye colour is defined and such. This should have been done before writing this piece and questioning people as you might very well be wasting your time. However it is good that you have an interest in this.
    Totally agree - also research on this has been done to death [to the poll creator - check out pubmed and run a search on the subject]. Basing your data set on an internet forum is dangerous to, as you're preselecting a fairly specific demographic, and you do not ask for any race or cultural information. I'm guessing the majority of Asians are brown eyed, and will probably select 'brown' eyes as their preference, but you've made no effort to identfy sub-sets in your data.

    You also need to include some kind of statisitical analysis, which will include identifying the proportions of different eye colours in the general population, as well as defining terms as suggested by ponjavic.

    There are a number of books (almost posted 'good books', but that would probably be a lie!) on how to conduct research, which may be a good starting point for you to work from.

    Green cus I've just taken a liking to green - and it's rare as well as striking.

    Although if the option was there I'd have voted for Green AND Blue. Blue eyes are really nice. Clear, deep blue eyes. Or hazy/clear green.

    Although I don't notice eyes much. Funnily enough it's the nose I notice most
