Larsen is one of the world's top researchers, and he is also a gifted teacher. These twin skills exhibit themselves on every page of Our Origins. In addition, the book is illustrated with state-of-the-art drawn figures and images from several of the world's leading photographers. The Second Edition has been thoroughly revised to stay abreast of developments in this fast-moving field-in particular, the significance of the Arbi discovery (announced in the fall of 2009) has been incorporated throughout.

All humans share certain components of tooth structure, but show variation in size and morphology around this shared pattern. This book presents a worldwide synthesis of the global variation in tooth morphology in recent populations. Research has advanced on many fronts since the publication of the first edition, which has become a seminal work on the subject. This revised and updated edition introduces new ideas in dental genetics and ontogeny and summarizes major historical problems addressed by dental morphology. The detailed descriptions of 29 dental variables are fully updated with current data and include details of a new web-based application for using crown and root morphology to evaluate ancestry in forensic cases. A new chapter describes what constitutes a modern human dentition in the context of the hominin fossil record.
