The identification of even the smallest human fetal bone can be vital to the success of a criminal investigation or to the identification of the deceased. This book examines every bone in the human body from its earliest embryological stage through to maturity and is profusely illustrated with superb bone drawings at every stage of development. The ability to identify every component of the developing skeleton is of core relevance not only to the forensic profession but also to clinicians, skeletal biologists and physical anthropologists. KEY FEATURES: *Identifies every component of the developing skeleton *Provides detailed analysis of juvenile skeletal remains and the development of bone as a tissue *Summarizes key morphological stages in the development of every boneDeciduous or permanent The crowns of deciduous first molars are unlike any other teeth, but the root pattern is similar to other molars. Second ... Third molars ( wisdom teeth) show much variation in shape. Features that ... Deciduous molars have a prominent cervical enamel margin making the cervix appear narrow and the crown bulbous. ...
