Human Biology, A Guide to Field Methods.
Weiner, J. S.; Lourie, J. A.
The aim of this handbook is to provide, in a form suitable for use in the field, instructions on the whole range of methods required for the fulfillment of human biological studies on a comparative basis. Certain of these methods can be used to carry out the rapid surveys on growth, physique, and genetic constitution. They are also appropriate for the pursuit of intensive multidisciplinary investigations. Finally, procedures are laid down whereby the requisite background information about the group, sample, and subject under study may be obtained. These concern, in particular, the full identification of the group, sample, and subject, medical and nutritional status, socio-demographic characteristics, and analysis of habitual activity patterns, as well as a description of the environment.
