Lateral enamel growth in human incisors from Çatalhöyük in Turkey

Bocaege, Emmy, Humphrey, L.T. (2016) Lateral enamel growth in human incisors from Çatalhöyük in Turkey. American Journal of Physical Anthropology, 161 (4). pp. 656-666. ISSN 0002-9483. (doi:10.1002/ajpa.23069) (KAR id:70053)


Whereas the differences in lateral enamel growth between fossil and modern populations have been well documented in recent years, few studies report on the variability in perikymata counts and distribution between modern human populations. There is a need for information on modern human populations from a wide range of geographical regions and archaeological populations to determine whether existing patterns are representative. The aim of this paper is to document enamel surface microstructures in human teeth from a previously unknown region and time period comprehensively.
