Human osteology by T. D White( Book )

51 editions published between 1991 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Revised from a classic in the field, the second edition of Human Osteology is designed for students and professionals who need to accurately identify human skeletal remains, however isolated and fragmentary. The book includes hundreds of photographs and drawings specifically designed to show a maximum amount of anatomical information. With the addition of four new case studies, a guide to electronic resources, and a chapter on molecular osteology, Human Osteology, Second Edition is even more valuable for courses on the human skeleton and as a basic reference and field manual for professional osteologists and anatomists, forensic scientists, paleontologists, and archaeologists."--Jacket
Prehistoric cannibalism at Mancos 5MTUMR-2346 by T. D White( )

17 editions published between 1992 and 2016 in English and held by 1,338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cannibalism is one of the oldest and most emotionally charged topics in anthropological literature. Tim White's analysis of human bones from an Anasazi pueblo in southwestern Colorado, site 5MTUMR-2346, reveals that nearly thirty men, women, and children were butchered and cooked there around A.D. 1100. Their bones were fractured for marrow, and the remains discarded in several rooms of the pueblo. By comparing the human skeletal remains with those of animals used for food at other sites, the author analyzes evidence for skinning, dismembering, cooking, and fracturing to infer that cannibalism took place at Mancos. As White evaluates claims for cannibalism in ethnographic and archaeological contexts worldwide, he describes how cultural biases can often distort the interpretation of scientific data. This book applies and introduces anatomical, taphonomic, zooarchaeological, and forensic methods in the investigation of prehistoric human behavior. It is an important example of how we can exchange opinion for knowledge. "Cannibalism is a controversial topic because many people do not want to believe that their prehistoric ancestors engaged in such activity, but they will be hard put to reject this meticulous study."--Kent V. Flannery, University of Michigan "This is the best piece of detailed research yet to appear that seeks to put in place a body of justified knowledge and a procedure for its use in making inferences about the past. No student of bones can ignore this work."--Lewis R. Binford, University of New Mexico "This could be one of the most important books in archaeology written in the last decade."--James F. O'Connell, University of Utah "Paleontologists and zooarchaeologists, archaeologists and physical anthropologists, taphonomists, and forensic scientists should all read this work. Quite frankly, I think this will become one of the most important books of the 1990s ..."--R. Lee Lyman, University of Missouri-ColumbiaOriginally published in 1992. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These paperback editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905

"Tim White and Pieter Folkens, the team behind the bestselling text, Human Osteology, Second Edition, have created the ideal concise guide for professional anthropologists, osteologists, law enforcement officers, and forensic specialists working with human bones in the field or laboratory. In addition to essential text information, hundreds of photographs are included, showing a maximum amount of anatomical information and providing a valuable tool in comparing specimens for rapid identification across the broad landscapes of law enforcement, forensics, anatomy, archaeology, and paleontology."--Jacket

Traité d'ostéologie humaine : anatomie, anthropologie, paléontologie by T. D White( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in French and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Quatrième de couverture : "L'anatomie osseuse vue par Tim White, le célèbre anthropologue, l'un des " pères " de Lucy, l'ancêtre australopithèque le plus connu au monde. L'ouvrage détaille de la manière la plus complète possible, tous les os appartenant au squelette humain, mais également l'approche minutieuse de la fouille, de l'exhumation, du terrain ainsi que le travail de laboratoire, en ce y compris les méthodologies de conservation, de protection, de fixation des matières osseuses et donc des restes humains, en vue d'analyses les plus modernes, allant de la macroscopie jusqu'à la microscopie électronique à balayage. Les techniques d'imagerie et de photographie sont également abordées, rendant tout particulièrement utile cet ouvrage pour tout scientifique désireux d'approfondir ces méthodes."
Bones, stones, and genes : the origin of modern humans( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Darwin proposed that humans evolved from a common ancestor with the great apes, he lacked fossil evidence to support his idea. One hundred and fifty years later, the evidence for human evolution is plentiful and growing, including detailed molecular genetics data, an impressive fossil record, and artifacts of early human culture like stone tools. In four presentations, leading scientists John Shea of Stony Book University, Sarah Tishkoff of the University of Pennsylvania, and Tim White of the University of California, Berkeley, guide us on a global exploration spanning millions of years to illuminate the rise of modern humans. This DVD set includes detailed chapter search by scientific topic; direct access to animations; English and Spanish subtitles; interviews with the speakers; special features on recent human evolution, the genetics of lactase persistence, comparing genomes, the nature of science; and discussions on science journalism and the genetics of bitter taste perception."--WWW page of

Theoretical landing mat analysis by T. D White( Book )

2 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A theoretical analysis of prototype landing mat was made using five mathematical models. The model responses were compared for the same data. Several correlations of model response and prototype performance were made to study the application of the models for prediction of coverage life for landing mat. An equation that is independent of any of the models is presented that will predict reasonably well the coverage life of various landing mat prototype sections as well as unsurfaced landing areas.

Extraction procedure for rubberized-tar paving mixtures by T. D White( Book )

2 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An extraction method for rubberized tar was developed and validated. The basic procedure is a modification of Method A of the Standard Method of Test for Quantitative Extraction of Bitumen from Bituminous Paving Mixtures, ASTM Designation D 2172. The modification involves use of a primary and a secondary solvent: a material derived from tar distillation called quinoline and 1,1,1-trichloroethane, respectively. Results of tests using the suggested method indicate that the method is valid for nonporous and porous aggregates over a wide range of rubberized-tar contents. (Author)
