Book Description:

Documents The Fels Longitudinal Study, one of the most remarkable and significant long-term studies in the field of human biology.

Review:

"...acessible to scholars from a range of disciplines, including anthropology, medicine, nutrition, and genetics." S. A. Quandt, Choice

"...a valuable contribution....of intrinsic interest to research specialists in growth and development and should be appreciated by serious students of the subject." Michelle Lampl, American Journal of Physical Anthropology

"...a valuable document of research topics and conclusions carried out in the Fels study. It is also a good source book on the history of growth studies in North American and the development of the Human Biology discipline over the past 62 years." William H. Mueller, American Journal of Human Biology

"The merits of this book include the breadth of the literature cited, the use of graphs, charts, and tables to augment the text, the description of ongoing and future research endeavors of Fels investigators, and the candid acknowledgements of the limitations of the Fels data." Paula A. Quatromoni, Journal of Nutrition Education

"I thoroughly enjoyed reading this volume. It is a rich source of information on a unique center and should be required reading for students of auxology." Science
