Primate Craniofacial Function and Biology is an integrative volume with broad coverage of current research on primate craniofacial biology and function. Topic headings include: the mammalian perspective on primate craniofacial form and function, allometric and comparative morphological studies of primate heads, in vivo research on primate mastication, modeling of the primate masticatory apparatus, primate dental form and function, and palaeoanthropologic studies of primate skulls.

Additionally, the volume includes introductory chapters discussing how primatologists study adaptations in primates and a discussion of in vivo approaches for studying primate performance. At present, there are no texts with a similar focus on primate craniofacial biology and no sources that approach this topic from such a wide range of research perspectives. This breadth of research covered by leaders in their respective fields make this volume a unique and innovative contribution to biological anthropology.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"Experimental analysis of functional adaptations of facial and skull form in nonhuman primates often has implications for human evolution as well. William Hylander (Duke Univ.) has been a major player in this arena since the early 1970s, and this volume is based on a 2005 symposium in his honor. ... Greater intercitation of chapters would have improved this excellent collection of often-complex papers. Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students, researchers, and faculty." (E. Delson, Choice, Vol. 46 (8), April, 2009)
