about

New Perspectives in Forensic Human Skeletal Identificationprovides 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 Identificationwill be an essential resource for researchers, practitioners, and advanced students interested in state-of-the-art methods for human identification.
