About the Authors
  • This volume is a review of up-to-date methods used in human growth research. Aimed at junior and senior researchers in human biology, anthropology, epidemiology and pediatrics involved in the analysis of normal and pathological growth and development data, it focuses on concepts, possibilities, limitations and applications.

    • Was the first book on the field of methods in human growth research, rather than on growth per se
    • Written for both junior and senior researchers who need to know which is the most appropriate method for the specific situation in hand
    • Gives just enough mathematical formulation and worked examples to understand the concepts, but emphasizes the possibilities, limitations and applicability of the methods
