The human fossil record

GN282

In this fourth volume in a series that describe the primary fossil specimens of the hominid biological past, Schwartz (physical anthropology, U. of Pittsburgh) and Tattersall (anthropology, American Museum of Natural History, and Columbia U.) begin with a brief account of the descriptive protocol and formats used, cleanly-rendered diagrams that illustrate anatomical terminology, and maps that indicate the location of each site. The greater part of the book consists of alphabetically listed entries on each site, and includes morphological descriptions, black & white photographs of specimens found, information on location and on the history of discovery, previous assessment of fossils, and references to the primary literature. The volume concludes with an overview of craniodental morphologies.
