Overview

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.
