Non-metric correspondence between Neandertal primary and permanent dentition
MetadataShow full item record
The present study aims to understand the underpinnings of dental crown morphological development and provide a dental morphological comparison between the baby and adult teeth of Krapina Neandertals with the expectations of finding a correspondence between the two dentitions based on their dental non-metric trait frequencies. 19 non-metric traits were scored utilizing the Arizona State University Dental Anthropology System (Turner et al., 1991) on both deciduous and permanent teeth of 12 KDPs (Krapina Dental Person) (n=62). Associations between the two dentitions for 11 traits were tested applying ...
