This laboratory manual is a comprehensive treatise on methods of biological anthropology, except PCR and Electrophoretic techniques. No other practical guide book in physical/biological anthropology has such a wide coverage and thorough treatment.
The section on Osteology is so thoroughly treated that it can claim a complete book itself. Sections on Comparative Anatomy and Palaeoanthropology are special additions, not found in any other similar book. Another special feature of this manual is its exquisite scientific illustrations numbering as many as 131. “Model Laboratory Work Sheets” is the other additional feature. Apart from lucid descriptions of different methods of biological anthropology, each topic is provided with its theoretical basis. This makes the book an essential guide for the under/post graduate students of anthropology.
