Teeth are the firmest, most durable parts of the mammalian body. Even after millions of years, they provide a wealth of paleobiological information. Teeth reflect the interaction of mammals with the environment as indicated by their shape and the traces of chewing on their surface. Fossil and extant mammal teeth provide information on diet, food processing modes, biomechanics of mastication and energy extraction. Modern analysis and visualization techniques such as microcomputed tomography, high-resolution surface analysis and 3D-imaging have significantly advanced research on tooth function in recent years. The book "Mammalian Teeth - Form and Function" provides a comprehensive overview of the latest advances in the field of tooth function research. It will be of interest not only to paleontologists and biologists, but also to students and scientists in the fields of archaeology, animal nutrition, and dentistry. 248 pages, 115 color and 20 black and white illustrations, 34 tables. 2021.
