Human Tooth Crown and Root Morphology

Author: G. Richard Scott
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
ISBN: 9781108165945
Release Date: 2017-03-16
Genre: Social Science

This guide to scoring crown and root traits in human dentitions substantially builds on a seminal 1991 work by Turner, Nichol, and Scott. It provides detailed descriptions and multiple illustrations of each crown and root trait to help guide researchers to make consistent observations on trait expression, greatly reducing observer error. The book also reflects exciting new developments driven by technology that have significant ramifications for dental anthropology, particularly the recent development of a web-based application that computes the probability that an individual belongs to a particular genogeographic grouping based on combinations of crown and root traits; as such, the utility of these variables is expanded to forensic anthropology. This book is ideal for researchers and graduate students in the fields of dental, physical, and forensic anthropology and will serve as a methodological guide for many years to come.

New Perspectives in Forensic Human Skeletal Identification

Genre: Law

New Perspectives in Forensic Human Skeletal Identification provides a comprehensive and up-to-date perspective on human identification methods in forensic anthropology. Divided into four distinct sections, the chapters will reflect recent advances in human skeletal identification, including statistical and morphometric methods for assessing the biological profile (sex, age, ancestry, stature), biochemical methods of identification (DNA analysis, stable isotope analysis, bomb curve analysis), and use of comparative radiography. The final section of this book highlights advances in human identification techniques that are being applied to international populations and disaster victims. The contributing authors represent established experts in forensic anthropology and closely related fields. New Perspectives in Forensic Human Skeletal Identification will be an essential resource for researchers, practitioners, and advanced students interested in state-of-the-art methods for human identification. A comprehensive and up-to-date volume on human identification methods in forensic anthropology Focuses on recent advances such as statistical and morphometric methods for assessing the biological profile, biochemical methods of identification and use of comparative radiography Includes an entire section on human identification techniques being applied to international populations and disaster victims

Naturgeschichte der Infektionskrankheiten des Menschen

Author: Frank Macfarlane Burnet
Publisher: S. Fischer Verlag
ISBN: 9783105614099
Release Date: 2016-10-17
Genre: Reference

Der Nobelpreisträger Frank Macfarlane Burnet schildert die Infektionskrankheiten als ein Schlüsselthema der Conditio humana. Er zeigt, wie sich in dem die Erkrankung auslösenden Kampf zwischen Erreger und Opferorganismus Grundprozesse des Lebens, Wachstum und Tod, enthüllen. Das Buch gibt Einblick in den chemischen Bauplan der Erreger, schildert anschaulich die Angriffs- und Abwehrstrategien, die komplizierten ökologischen Beziehungen des Menschen zu den Organismen seiner Umwelt. Indem es die schrittweise Eindämmung großer Seuchen, die jahrtausendelang die Menschheit dezimiert haben, nacherzählt, aber auch die Negativfolgen dieses Fortschritts – die Gefahr der Übervölkerung und die Entwicklung biologischer Massenvernichtungsmittel – eindringlich beim Namen nennt, ist das Buch gleichzeitig ein fesselndes Stück Evolutions-, Wissenschafts- und Kulturgeschichte.

Advances in Dental Anthropology

Author: Mark A. Kelley
Publisher: Wiley
ISBN: UCSC:32106009555829
Release Date: 1991-01-23
Genre: Social Science

Owing to their hardness, density and extreme durability in the burial matrix, human teeth offer investigators a remarkably complete biological and behavioral record of past and living populations. This volume chronicles the dramatic progress made in dental anthropology since the field was established in 1963. Covers a range of methodologies and addresses numerous research questions of current interest. Among the topics discussed are microwear, morphological variation, adontometrics, intentional and unintentional modification, age estimation, pathology, enamel defects, occlusal variation, growth and development.
