Advances in genetics, histology, microstructure, biomechanics, and morphometrics have allowed researchers to view teeth and dental tissue from new perspectives. Written by leading experts in the field, this book brings together overviews on a wide range of dental topics. The contributors discuss the latest research linking genes, molecules, and developmental mechanisms within an evolutionary framework. This book will stimulate cooperative research in fields as diverse as paleontology, molecular biology, developmental biology, and functional morphology.
