Overview

Revised from a classic in the field, the second edition of Human Osteology is designed for students and professionals who need to accurately identify human skeletal remains, however isolated and fragmentary. The book includes hundreds of photographs and drawings specifically designed to show a maximum amount of anatomical information. With the addition of four new case studies, a guide to electronic resources, and a chapter on molecular osteology, Human Osteology, Second Edition is even more valuable for courses on the human skeleton and as a basic reference and field manual for professional osteologists and anatomists, forensic scientists, paleontologists, and archaeologists.
