- Whilst great strides have been taken in the genetics, histology, microstructure and morphology of tooth development and evolution, most workers in the field remain unaware of developments in adjacent disciplines. For the first time, this book brings together these exciting new findings to stimulate fruitful new avenues of coooperative research.
