Comparative Dental Morphology: Selected Papers of the 14th International Symposium PDF Download Ebook. T. Koppe, G. Meyer, K. W. Alt and A. Brook show how information about various aspects of dental morphology can be used to explore the evolution of vertebrate life histories, a subject most relevant to our own species.
The book contains up-to-date original papers intended to provide a broad picture on the current aspects of research in dental morphology. There are 30 selected papers arranged into sections, including dental evolution, dental morphology, dental tissues, and dental growth and development.
Teeth and their surrounding structures are exceptional sources for addressing significant questions in numerous disciplines. In this book, an international, multidisciplinary team of researchers addresses important issues on current aspects of dental morphology research from evolutionary, anatomical, clinical and archaeological perspectives. This text combines leading-edge methods of data acquisition and analyses, such as molecular analyses and highly advanced non-destructive imaging technologies.
The chapters provide profound discussions on dental evolution, dental morphology, dental tissues, dental growth and development, as well as on clinical aspects of dental morphology. As a special feature, the publication provides new information about the role of teeth as tools in reconstructing the nature and behaviour of past populations.
This book will serve as an important reference for researchers of dental sciences, anatomy, evolutionary biology, paleoanthropology, paleontology, archaeology, prehistoric anthropology, comparative anatomy, genetics, embryology, and forensic medicine. It will be of interest to students and orthodontists with an enquiring mind, who strive to understand the oral environment in which they work.
