I watched the documentary "Evolve" recently and in the segment on "size" Scott V. Edwards, Harvard evolutionary biologist mentioned the idea that humans might evolve to be 7' tall in 'hundreds of years'. (I think this may have been taken out of context... I have emailed him to find out, but do not expect a response from someone so busy)
The reasoning goes that the trend in the past 100 years has been greater height, and women show a strong preference for men who are taller than they are. (Though a large share perhaps all of this difference has been due to diets higher in protein at an early age)
I wonder, though, if this is only part of the story. The preference women have is not just for tall men, but for a man who is taller than she is. Likewise, men seem to prefer woman who are shorter than they are. There is even cultural pressure: the classic western image of a couple on wedding cake always shows a man who is about 4" (to scale) taller than the bride.
Thus, women who are short have an advantage as they have a greater pool of men to choose from. (Colloquially, simply ask any 6' tall woman if she feels her height helps her find dates.)
Let's say that men seek women who are shorter than they are, but no more than 8" shorter. Women seek men who are taller than they are but no more than 8" taller. Given that the current average height for men is 5'8" and for women it is 5'4" (and distributed normally SD 2.8") will we have selective pressure that leads to greater or lesser height? (This is, obviously, oversimplified, but it is a starting point.)
