Standards for Data Collection from Human Skeletal Remains

  title={Standards for Data Collection from Human Skeletal Remains},
  author={Jane E. Buikstra and Douglas H Ubelaker},
Course Description and Goals: In this hands-on laboratory course, we will take an in-depth study of the human skeleton as a dynamic, living system. We will examine each bone, with a review of normal and abnormal variations. In the course of this examination, we will cover bone biology, growth and development, and anatomy. You will learn how to record osteological observations and apply this knowledge to make determinations about age, sex, stature, and pathological conditions. We will also… 

Forensic anthropology from skeletal remains to CT scans: A review on sexual dimorphism of human skull

It is concluded that using CT scans in forensic anthropology is a viable and sometimes better option than skeletal collections, in term of data acquisition.

New methods for sex estimation using sternum and rib morphology

Of all the skeletal elements examined in this study, the sternum, left sixth, left eighth, and left ninth ribs were found to be the most reliable skeletal elements for estimating the sex of an individual.

A study of the age related changes on the endocranial surface of the skull

The aim of this project was to investigate five aspects of the endocranial surface of the skull; mid-parietal thickness, hyperostosis frontalis interna (HFI), cranial suture fusion, vascular grooves and arachnoid granulations and to evaluate their relationship with age.

Sex determination from the bones of the forearm in a modern South African sample

With a large number of unidentified skeletal remains found in South Africa, the development of osteometric standards to determine sex from various bones is crucial. It is imperative that a forensic

The Utility of Skeletal and Surgical Features for the Personal Identification Process: A Pilot Study

Skeleton findings may provide useful postmortem information that can be compared with antemortem witness statements and clinical imaging, but more research into the utility of dry bone findings and the availability of comparative material, including imaging, and epidemiological data needs to be undertaken before skeletal features can be implemented into identification protocols and databases.

Ontogenetic perspectives on modern human long bone growth: the humerus

The primary aim of this study is to map histological changes within the humerus with age, to ascertain how bone robusticity influences bone growth, within age-matched juveniles.

Contributory Factors of Extraneous New Bone Growth on the Endocranial Surfaces of Human Infant and Sub-Adult Skeletal Remains

There is a correlation that can be established between certain specific factors and lesions caused by pathological processes whereas other factors showed a correlation to growth and developmental processes, or were found not to be contributory to either process.

Sex estimation from the radiographic measurements of the humerus

The dimensions of the humerus, especially the measurements taken from the proximal parts, could be used successfuly for sex diagnosis and contribute to establishing discriminant function equations for Anatolian populations for medicolegal applications.

Long Bone (Humerus, Femur, Tibia) Measuring Procedure in Cadavers

This note outlines the measuring methodology, which will be subsequently used to create regression formulas for stature estimation, and results show marginal differences between cadaveric and dry bone measurements, resulting from different osteometric technical procedures.
