CULTURE, ECOLOGY AND DENTAL ANTHROPOLOGY

An international group of experts in dental anthropology address key issues involving the impact of cultural and ecological factors on human dental development and variability. Living and prehistoric human populations from Africa, Australia, Europe and North America are included in this comprehensive volume which gives special attention to Asian populations. The wide range of topics discussed in this volume include how variation in cultural, and ecological factors influence calcification and eruption of the dentition, heritability of dental variations, tooth size and its use as an indicator of environmental stress of genetic determination, the spatial and temporal distribution of dental disease, and finally variation in dental morphology and tooth size between ethnic groups and prehistoric skeletal series.
