about

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.

Editorial Reviews

"...so well written that readers will take pleasure in extracting the information from its pages. Kieser covers every aspect of human dentition relating to the use of such data in characterizing and comparing populations. The volume is elegantly arranged, extremely well illustrated, and carefully indexed....should be in every good research library, as well as in the hands of physical anthropologists involved in the study and interpretation of excavated skeletal collections of human skeletons." Marshall Joseph Becker, American Journal of Archaelogy
