Biografie (woord)

María Martinón-Torres is a Reader in Paleoanthropology at University College London. She has studied some of the most relevant fossil dental samples from Eurasia, from the Pleistocene sites of Atapuerca to the earliest Homo sapiens in China.


Advance praise: 'Twenty years was well worth the wait. The authors' expertise complement each other perfectly while paying tribute to the late Christy Turner whose circum-Pacific research inspired so many to take up the buff yellow plaques. Revised and updated with new information on dental genetics and hominin dentition, The Anthropology of Modern Human Teeth provides a soup to nuts history of the field of dental morphology, while also providing clear guidance on future prospects. Its completeness provides the novice dental anthropologist with all that is needed to begin, and the expert a much needed survey and summary of the last six decades of work. From forensic applications, to multiscalar bioarchaeological research, to the intricacies of hominin crown and EDJ morphology, there is something here for everyone with even a passing interest in what teeth can tell us about the past and present.' Christopher Stojanowski, Arizona State University
