Recent Publications: Watson a Team Member in AJPA Dental Microwear Study

ASM Associate Director and SoA Associate Professor, Dr. James Watson, was part of a large team who published a global study on tooth wear in past populations in the most recent issue of the American Journal of Physical Anthropology. The article, “Dental microwear texture analysis of Homo sapiens sapiens: foragers, farmers, and pastoralists,” highlights how tooth wear varies largely through dietary differences rather than across differing environments, although there were some interesting differences between old and new world groups. You’ll find the article here. (AnthroNews date: 5/17/2018)
