Overview

Human Growth: Assessment and Interpretation provides a complete reference to the field for all those who measure and assess child growth. It emphasizes the interpretation of growth data taking into account the adjusted effects of influences such as genes, hormones, and substance abuse during pregnancy, gives descriptions of normal and abnormal growth patterns, and of variant growth patterns such as failure-to-thrive and catch-up growth. Including methods to measure size and maturity, the judgement and interpretation of recorded data, evaluations of influences on growth, and the significance of abnormal growth, it will be an essential source of information for pediatricians, human biologists, health workers, nutritionists, epidemiologists, and others who are responsible for the health and welfare of children.
