Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Human tooth size lies central to the fields of dentistry, physical anthropology, human biology, forensic dentistry, and archaeology. An appreciation of the genetic and environmental determinants of tooth size is fundamental to an understanding of the metric variation of teeth in humans. Thus, besides imparting a sound knowledge of the theories of dental inheritance, development and evolution, this book demonstrates the diverse practical applications of odontometrics.

Synopsis:

A text that aims to impart a sound knowledge of the theories of dental inheritance, development and evolution, and which demonstrates the diverse practical application of odontrometrics. Numerous tables providing information on tooth size in different population groups are included.
