Summary

Now in full color, Diane France's lab manual balances the study of human osteology, forensic anthropology, anthropometry, primates, human evolution, and genetics with a new chapter on growth & development, more material on disease and more on the anomalies of the human skeleton caused by disease and mechanical stress. Redundant and complex exercises have been pulled and the art program has been greatly enhanced with color images that include scales and orientation information. Exercises now contain thumbnail images of the related images for easy reference. In addition to providing hands-on lab assignments that help students apply physical anthropology perspectives and techniques to real situations, the Lab Manual provides a wealth of solid information and photographs that support the identification and observation problems that help make the concepts of physical anthropology easier to understand. This edition has been thoroughly reviewed, error-checked, revised and updated for complete accuracy and more balanced coverage of topic material. Diane France brings full color visuals, a new chapter on Growth & Development, a unique chapter on Forensic Anthropology and an online Instructor's Manual that includes answers to the exercises contained in the lab manual, to make this manual even easier to integrate into your course. Additional exercises and an e-book can be found on the new Web Tutor Advantage Plus that accompanies this text.
