9780521019033: Body Composition in Biological Anthropology (Cambridge Studies in Biological and Evolutionary Anthropology)

This volume provides a thought-provoking, interdisciplinary perspective on the empirical and analytic study of body composition and the techniques used for measuring body components, such as fat, water, muscle, and bone mass and density. The nature of regional differences, developmental changes, pathological abnormalities, and the impact of heredity and environment in shaping body composition are discussed in the context of human evolution. For instance, the author looks at how growth, aging, and exposure to heat, cold, excess or lack of nourishment modify normal body composition.

Book Description:

This volume provides a thought-provoking perspective on the empirical and analytic study of body form and composition. The techniques used for measuring body components such as fat, water, lean tissue, bone mass and bone density are evaluated against potential 'gold standards'.

Review:

"The book differs from some other works in biological anthropology by taking an explicitly evolutionary perspective, and includes interesting perspectives from the history of biological anthropology, all written in a very readable style." Choice

"...A lot of valuable information is packed into these chapters...will be of interest as a general overview of body composition techniques and issues." The Quarterly Review of Biology
