Description - Human Growth in the Past by Robert D. Hoppa

Studies of dental and skeletal growth and development have often been treated as independent disciplines within the literature. Human Growth in the Past, first published in 1999, brings together these two related fields of enquiry in a single volume whose purpose is to place methodological issues of growth and development in past populations within a strong theoretical framework. Contributions examine a variety of aspects of human growth in the past, drawing from both palaeoanthropological and bioarchaeological data. The book covers a wide spectrum of topics, from patterns of growth in humans and their close relatives, innovative methods and applications of techniques and models for the study of growth, to estimation of age-at-death in subadults and infant mortality in archaeological samples. Human Growth in the Past will be of interest to biological anthropologists, and those in the related fields of dental anatomy, evolutionary biology and developmental biology.
