Bone Histology: An Anthropological Perspective

by

Bone Histology: An Anthropological Perspective Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A broad understanding of bone and tooth microstructure is necessary for constructing the biological profile of an individual or individuals within a population. Bone Histology: An Anthropological Perspective brings together authors with extensive experience and expertise in various aspects of hard tissue histology to provide a comprehensive discussion of the application of methods, current theories, and future directions in hard tissue research related to anthropological questions.

Topics discussed include:

  • The biology underlying skeletal growth and development leading to adult skeletal morphology
  • Current research in understanding in bone modeling
  • Histological features of dental hard tissues and their utility in biological anthropology
  • Histological analysis as a means to differentiate human from nonhuman bone and for the purpose of age estimation
  • The biomechanics of cortical bone
  • Histotaphonomy and how postmortem microstructural change can be used for taphonomic inquiry
  • The application of light microscopy in paleopathology to classify pathological conditions
  • The histological study of bone tissue of archaeological origin
  • Researchers access to collections of bone samples with known demographic information
  • Technological aspects of hard tissue histology, including laboratory requirements and high-resolution imaging

In most cases, the physical remains of humans available to bioarchaeologists, paleopathologists, and paleontologists are limited to skeletal material. Fortunately, these hard tissues are a storehouse of information about biological processes experienced during the life of an individual. This volume provides an overview of the current state of research and potential applications in anthropology and other fields that employ a histological approach to the study of hard tissues.

Book News Annotation:

This book is for students, researchers, and practitioners in anthropology and other fields related to skeletal biology. It provides an overview of the current state of research and potential applications in anthropology or any other field that employs a histological approach to study hard tissues (bones and teeth), detailing how skeletal material is studied by bioarchaeologists, paleopathologists, and paleontologists to shed light on biological processes. The first four chapters cover the basic biology of hard tissues: bone remodeling, histomorphology, and histomorphometry; abnormalities of growth and development; a microstructural perspective on bone modeling; and histological features of dental hard tissues and their use in forensic anthropology. Later chapters cover areas such as differentiating human from nonhuman bone, light microscopic analysis of pathologically changed bones, and the histology laboratory and principles of microscope instrumentation. The book includes b&w photos and images on every page, plus a 17-page section of color images. Material originated from discussions at the July 2009 Forensic Histology Workshop, organized by the Department of Medical Education of the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology. Information on the editors is not given. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Written for students and practitioners within the discipline of anthropology, this book provides a comprehensive discussion of the application of methods, current theories, and future directions in hard tissue research. It includes information on differentiating human from non-human bone, and discusses areas such as bone mechanics and histopathology. It provides direction for juvenile and adult bone age estimation and includes over 150 photographs for reference, including 43 in color. Specific topics include basic bone and dental biology and histomorphology; bone health, growth and development; advances in technology, and histological collections available for researchers.
