Perhaps since Martians experienced lower gravity throughout their lives than Earthers, they became a tad higher and slimmer than their ancestors, but also had less dense bones and muscles which limits their capability of coping with G-forces?

That's an interesting idea. Indeed this was to happen if mankind would stay on Mars for longer, but I'm not sure if the colonisation would be long enough in FS (or in this case BP) for such effects to occur as the selection pressure from low-g to high-g is much higher than vice-versa. Also I'd presume such effects could be compensated by technology for a prolonged time at this point, not to mention further migration from Earth.

PM incoming.

There is just the tiny problem about those of us who are not blessed with a treasure trove of primary sources.

While the answer is, of course, to knuckle down and do your research from other sources, the logistics of it aren't always as easy.
