Review Quotes
"No previous publication provides a complete, richly illustrated, systematic account of every element of the immature skeleton and a summary of all of the main relevant publications from the past 300 years with an emphasis on documented specimens. This book should be in every medical and anthropological library. Rating ***** - Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journals "...without doubt a worth addition to the field of anatomy and should be a strong "must have" for anyone interested in the growing human, whether from a clinical, forensic or archeological point of view. It should also find an indispensable place on the shelves of the libraries of all institutions where teaching and understanding of human anatomy is an important component of any courses and their specification or curricula." - Journal of Anatomy "Scheuer and Black have taken on the monumental task of producing a much-needed reference, and they have succeeded... Each chapter is beautifully illustrated with various views of the bones and their respective features and epiphyses... These authors have invested heavily in researching the literature as well as museum collections in order to create Developmental Juvenile Osteology. Anyone who works with human skeletal remains in any context would greatly benefit from having this text as part of his or her library." - American Journal of Physical Anthropology
"This book is really a very much-needed text and reference book which is not only immensely helpful for physical anthropologists, but also for general biologists and anatomists working on the development of the human skeleton. ...The book can whole-heartedly be recommended..." M. Schultz for AUXOLOGIE (2002) "The text is informative and well written, and makes fluent reading. This book will become a standard reference text and should be available not only in departments of archaeology and anthropology, but also to paediatric clinicians, radiologists and lawyers." Christine Hall in THE JOURNAL OF BONE AND JOINT SURGERY (April 2001) "Scheuer and Black have produced a much-needed reference text where previously there was mostly a void. These authors have invested heavily in researching the literature as well as museum collections in order to create Developmental Juvenile Osteology. Anyone who works with human skeletal remains in any context would greatly benefit from having this text as part of his or her library." Lee Meadows Jantz, University of Tennessee, in AMERICAN JOURNAL OF PHYSICAL ANTHROPOLOGY (2001) "It is without doubt a worthy addition to the field of anatomy and should be a strong 'must have' for anyone interested in the growing human, whether from a clinical, forensic or archeological point of view. It should also find an indispensable place on the shelves of libraries and institutions where teaching and understanding of human anatomy is an important component of any courses and their specification or curricula." Peter Dangerfield, Liverpool University, in JOURNAL OF ANATOMY (2001) "...a welcome, long overdue contribution... The greatest achievement of this book is the combination of its unusual level of detail, top-quality illustrative material, and methodologies the authors have developed themselves, or wisely culled (and adapted) from fellow researchers. ...the book is unsurpassed in its handling of the complex anatomy of the young individual. ...an essential volume for archaeologists and physical anthropologists in the field..." Yoel Rak, Tel Aviv University, in JOURNAL OF HUMAN EVOLUTION (2001) "This book should be in every medical and anthropological library." Edgar F. Allin, DOODY'S HEALTH SCIENCES BOOK REVIEW JOURNAL (2001)

Summaries
Back Cover Copy
The correct identification of the skeletal components of the juvenile skeleton is critical to the analysis of human remains. Without such information it is impossible to establish the number of individuals represented or to ascertain their age at death. Until now there has been no text solely dedicated to the development of the juvenile skeleton. For the first time this book by Louise Scheuer and Sue Black brings together information from the vast and widely dispersed anthropological and medical literature. It is aimed primarily at physical anthropologists, archaeologists and forensic pathologists but should prove of interest to a much wider scientific and clinical readership. The introductory chapters deal with the basic principles involved in deducing age from juvenile skeletal samples and in the development of bone as a tissue. The main part of the book describes each bone, first in its adult state and then its development from the earliest embryological stage to maturity. The individual sections are fully referenced and profusely illustrated with superb new drawings of bones at successive stages of development. Each section closes with "Practical Notes", which summarize previous information, describe how to side and distinguish a bone from others of a similar morphology and give detailed metrics from documented sources. Any scientist interested in human skeletal biology will find this an essential text. It will prove to be invaluable in the laboratory, to identify and age juvenile bones, and in the library, as a basis for further study of any part of the human skeleton.
Bowker Data Service Summary
This work gives an account of the development of all the bones of the human skeleton, from their earliest embryological form. In can be used as a laboratory manual to recognize and age the skeleton remains of an individual, and as the starting point for a study of the bones of the human skeleton.
Main Description
Developmental Juvenile Osteology gives an account of the development of all the bones of the human skeleton, from their earliest embryological form to final adult form.
