Anthropometry: The Individual and the Population (Cambridge Studies in Biological and Evolutionary Anthropolog #14) (Hardcover)

Anthropometry, the measurement of human morphology, is used in a wide range of applied and research contexts. In this volume, anthropologists, human biologists, physiologists, nutritionists and clinical scientists describe many of the ways in which anthropometry is used, and discuss problems associated with different methods of assessment. Topics include the measurement of growth asymmetry and variability in adult body size, measurement error and statistical issues in anthropometry, and the construction and use of growth charts in growth monitoring. The use of anthropometry in assessments of body composition, physical performance and fitness is also discussed.
