Reviews & endorsements
"...will bring readers up to date on the advances in mammalian dental research. This new edition is more than just an update of new technologies and references...Teeth II is a welcome addition to the literature on mammalian dental form. It is written in a manner that will be accessible to students with a limited background, yet still provides important reference materials for established researchers. I bought two copies of the first edition...and the current volume is even better. Would I buy this book? Absolutely!" - The Quarterly Review of Biology, Peter S. Ungar, University of Arkansas
