About this book

When a bone of unknown origin is found at a location, forensic implications arise immediately. Is this bone human, and if so, is it evidence of a murder? Human and Non-Human Bone Identification: A Color Atlas presents a comprehensive handbook of photographs and other information essential for law enforcement and forensic anthropologists when examining skeletal remains and determining species and body parts.

Presenting over 3000 color photographs, this atlas is a practical comparative guide to the differences among species for nearly all bones in the body. Useful in either the laboratory or the field, it features images of the types of bones that are most commonly discovered, and provides annotations pointing out salient features.

The book begins with a section on general osteology and explains the major anatomical differences between humans and other animals. It compares human and non-human bones, categorized by type of bone, and includes most of the major bones in humans and non-humans. The third section discusses non-human skeletal elements, categorized by species, and explores numerous skeletal elements within those species.

Media reviews

"[...] a much-needed reference with many excellent color images for comparative skeletal anatomy focused on human bones and nonhuman bones that are most likely to be encountered in a medicolegal investigation [...] the amount of text is just right. The most important information is conveyed in a concise way that is useful for the novice and expert alike. The images of the bones are excellent [...] This book is an essential resource for professionals involved in medicolegal investigation who routinely deal with distinguishing human and nonhuman bone. It also has applications beyond forensic anthropology, including archaeology and comparative skeletal anatomy and should be a welcome addition to many classroom libraries."
– Dawn M. Mulhern, Ph.D., Journal of Forensic Sciences, volume 54, issue 6
