Forensic applications of dental morphology are more recent.
Based on the TCMT, dental morphology is studied from an interdisciplinary viewpoint (biology, anthropology, dentistry, paleopathology, archeology, forensic science) because teeth can be used in the estimation of biological relationships between populations.
aragonensis by A.tricristatus in the Madrid Basin occurred during the Middle Miocene Climate Transition (MMCT) (Shackleton and Kennet, 1975; Zachos et al., 2001; Shevenell et al., 2004) and is marked by a change in dental morphology. Therefore, in order to infer changes in diet associated to a shift in the environment, we checked for correlations on microwear features between the two different morphologies of the species.
Dental morphology is an effective method for tracing intrapopulation variation, interpopulation relationships, and microevolution (Coppa et al.
In addition, the variation in the dental morphology and cranial measurements within Bornean orangutan is greater than or equal to the variation between Bornean and Sumatran orangutan [5].
This explains why mutation of these genes produces complex anomalies and multi-organic syndromes, including dental morphology, number or eruption abnormalities.
Nonetheless, Mammal Teeth is a highly valuable contribution to recent literature on the important subject of dental morphology and evolution.
International Symposium on Dental Morphology (14th: 2008: Greifswald, Germany) Ed.
It ranges from stone axe blades and dental morphology through marriage, haemophilia, gender and myth to kin terms and proto-Micronesian.
Dental microwear analysis (DMA) is a valuable means of dietary reconstruction for extant and extinct animals because it provides insight independent of dental morphology. It was employed to elucidate the diet of the extinct Late Pleistocene Flat-headed Peccary, Platygonus compressus.
Species of Ptychodus are differentiated on the basis of variations in dental morphology (e.g., Cappetta 1987).
Analysis of the dental morphology, as well as morphometric analysis of the complete mandible, shows Eskimoid characters and resemblance with later period Greenlandic human skeletal remains.
