    Abstract

    The study of the external tooth morphology can be undertaken in a non-destructive and relatively inexpensive manner. All one needs are good eyes (or a good hand lens), a decent set of calipers and a good single-lens reflex (SLR) or digital camera to keep a permanent record. As such, gross morphology (including size and shape) has long been a subject of interest to paleoanthropologists. Measurements also have a long-standing role in assessing humanevolution (Wolpoff, 1971; Frayer, 1977; Brace et al., 1987; e.g., Bermúdez de Castro and Nicolás, 1996).
