Assessment of systemic physiological perturbations from dental enamel hypoplasias and associated histological structures
Dental enamel hypoplasias are deficiencies in enamel thickness resulting from physiological perturbations (stress) during the secretory phase of amelogenesis, and their study has begun to extend into other subdisciplines of physical anthropology.
Biocultural perspectives on stress in prehistoric, historical, and contemporary population research
Stress, a concept addressing the consequences of disruptive events on individuals and populations, can be a useful integrative idea. The stress process has much in common with its sister concept of
Factors affecting the distribution of enamel hypoplasias within the human permanent dentition.
Differences in hypoplasia frequencies among teeth are not solely due to variation in time of crown development, as is usually reported, and there is evidence for biological gradients in susceptibility to ameloblastic disruption.
Enamel hypoplasia and early mortality: Bioarcheological support for the Barker hypothesis
A handful of studies of different populations reveals that individuals with enamel defects that developed in utero and early in infant‐childhood development tend to be subject to earlier adolescent or adult mortality.

There is a paradoxical relationship between "race" and genetics. Whereas genetic data were first used to prove the validity of race, since the early 1970s they have been used to illustrate the

Application of laser ablation–inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (LA–ICP–MS) to investigate trace metal spatial distributions in human tooth enamel and dentine growth layers and pulp
The ability of LA–ICP–MS to provide unique elemental distribution information in micro spatial areas of dental hard tissues is demonstrated and could be useful in decoding nutrition and pollution information embedded in their bio apatite structure.
