The Teeth of Mammalian Vertebrates presents a comprehensive survey of mammalian dentitions that is based on material gathered from museums and research workers from around the world. The teeth are major factors in the success of mammals, and knowledge of tooth form and function is essential in mammalian biology. Illustrated with high-quality color photographs of skulls and dentitions, together with X-rays, CT images and histology, this book reveals the tremendous variety of tooth form and structure in mammals. Written by two internationally-recognized experts in dental anatomy, the book provides an up-to-date account of how teeth are adapted to acquiring and processing food.

With its companion volume, this book provides a complete survey of the teeth of vertebrates. It is the ideal resource for students and researchers in zoology, biology, anthropology, archaeology and dentistry.

  • Provides a comprehensive account of mammalian dentitions, together with helpful reading lists
  • Illustrated by 900 high-quality photographs, X-rays, CT scans and histological images from leading researchers and world class museum collection
  • Depicts lateral and occlusal views of the skull and dentition, which conveys a much greater level of morphological detail than line drawings
  • Contains clear-and-concise, up-to-date reviews of the structure and properties of dental tissues, especially the enamel and tooth support system, both of which play vital roles in the functioning of the mammalian dentition

Biografie (woord)

Dr R Peter Shellis graduated from Birmingham University (BSc in Zoology and Comparative Physiology, 1966, MSc in Radiobiology, 1967). From 1968 to 1972 he worked with Prof AEW Miles at the London Hospital Medical College on the development of teeth in fishes. From 1972 to 1998 Dr Shellis worked on dental caries for the Medical Research Council in Bristol, also publishing research on comparative dental anatomy, particularly on primate tooth structure. Later, he worked with Prof M Addy (Bristol) and Prof A Lussi (Bern) on dental erosion and was Editor-in-Chief of Caries Research (2000-2009). Dr Shellis won the Colgate-Palmolive Prize (British Society for Dental Resarch) in 1981 and the ORCA Prize (European Organization for Caries Research: ORCA) in 2011. He is an Honorary Member of ORCA since 2010.

Presents a comprehensive survey of mammalian dentitions that is based on material gathered from global museums and research workers


"This imposing, impressive and informative text acts as a companion to The Teeth of Non-Mammalian Vertebrates, which was released in 2017 (and reviewed in the April 2017 issue of the FDJ), and will thus complete the description of vertebrate dentitions in current existence. It is a very eye-catching hardback of over 300 pages in 16 chapters, each with its own reference list.

As expected from two such eminent authors, this text will prove a vital addition to research and teaching communities looking to make sense of the mammalian world and its influence on the human experience." --Faculty Dental Journal

"Berkovitz and Shellis have done a masterful job. The descriptions are comprehensive and the photographic illustrations are ample. This volume is a perfect companion to The Teeth of Non-Mammalian Vertebrates. And together, these two volumes present a fitting celebration of Darwin s endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful." --Quarterly Review of Biology
