The Department of Human Evolution at the
Max-Planck-Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology is pleased
to host a symposium on recent research in Dental Paleoanthropology,
May 26-28, 2005. The title of this conference is Dental
Perspectives on Human Evolution: State of the Art Research
in Dental Anthropology.
Our objective is to bring together researchers
who are working on new and innovative approaches to applying
dental anthropological research to paleoanthropological questions.
We endeavor to represent many areas of the field including
metrics and morphology, growth and development, diet, microwear,
microstructure, dental evolution, phylogeny and new fossil
discoveries. Over 20 distinguished researchers in the field
of Dental Anthropology have agreed to take part in the symposium
this May (click here for a list of conference participants).
