The first comprehensive collection of all the major methods for studying the histology and histomorphometry of bone and cartilage. The detailed methods include techniques for bone labeling, bone sectioning, histological analysis, histomorphometric analysis, radiological examination, and contact radiography. Among the applications presented are in situ hybridization of bone and cartilage, radiological examination of calcified tissue with emphasis on bone, and dealing with histology artifacts in hard tissue research. More practical than theoretical, the text is simple and straightforward, with many tables, line drawings, and micro and macro photographs to illustrate the content. Full bibliographies at the end of each chapter guide the reader to additional detailed information.
