520    Despite significant positive developments within topics of
       biological anthropology, archaeology, and related academic
       areas in Latin America, we noted a lack of coordination 
       and communication among them. Available publications 
       provide syntheses within different areas of biological 
       anthropology, yet few have attempted integration of the 
       distinct subfields. We decided to address the development 
       and current issues of most major areas of Latin American 
       biological anthropology in a single volume with chapters 
       by distinguished, experienced scholars who live and work 
       in Latin America, are knowledgeable about the topics, have
       published extensively on them, and who were recommended by
       specialists within six geographical regions of interest: 
       Brazil and Northeast South America, Mexico, Central 
       America, the Caribbean, Northwestern South America, and 
       Southern South America. Six subdisciplines within 
       biological anthropology were defined for academic coverage
       : (1) biodemography/epidemiology; (2) bioarchaeology/
       skeletal biology; (3) paleopathology; (4) forensic 
       anthropology; (5) population genetics; and (6) growth and 
       development/health and nutrition. Although these six 
       subdisciplines overlap to some extent, each offers a 
       distinct history of development and currently presents 
       unique issues to address. Chapters generally cover topics 
       of history, state of knowledge, methodological perspective,
       and areas in need of additional research. Although the 
       text is written in English, abstracts of English, Spanish 
       and Portuguese are included--Provided by publisher.
