ANTHROPOMETRY

The “Laboratory Manual for Human Blood Analysis” is a unique textbook. It is “must be” for all laboratories, in which the genetic blood group systems of man are analysed. This “Laboratory Manual” does not offer only excellent possibilities to the beginner to become familiar with the multifaced experimental and statistical methods employed in serological population genetics, but is also an excellent laboratory reference book for the advanced scholar. That is why one wish a broad distribution of this book. There is no doubt that in future the “Laboratory Manual” will become the Standard Text and Reference Book to all those who in research or in practice wish to work or are already working in the field of the genetic markers of the human blood. —ANTHROPOLOGISCHER ANZEIGER (Germany)

Human blood studies, both theoretical and practical, are an integral part of curricula of varied disciplines - Medical Sciences, Biological Anthropology, Zoology, Forensic Science, Genetics, Life Sciences, Human Biology, but there seems to be great paucity of books covering laboratory techniques. The present book covers the latest techniques, giving their description and methods of execution in lucid terms. The book has thirteen chapters:
