202 pages



Frontiers of oral biology; v.13


Providing a broad view of current research, international researchers look at dental morphology from evolutionary, anatomical, clinical, and archaeological perspectives. Combining leading-edge methods of data acquisition and analysis (such as molecular analyses and non-destructive imaging technologies), the book shows how various aspects of dental morphology can shed light on the evolution of vertebrate life, including that of humans. Chapter topics include dental evolution, dental morphology, dental tissues, dental growth and development, and clinical aspects of dental morphology. The book also includes a section about how teeth can be used in reconstructing the nature and behavior of past human populations. This book will greatly interest researchers in dental science and anatomy, as well as those in fields such as evolutionary biology, paleontology, archaeology, and forensic medicine.
