Human Versus Nonhuman

Abstract

Distinguishing human from nonhuman bone and from nonosseous material is a challenging task in forensic anthropology. This determination is important because 'human' confirmation dictates medicolegal significance. The aim here is to provide an introduction to the methods available to the forensic anthropologist for distinguishing human from nonhuman bone. There are complexities and limitations that determine whether a given method can be applied and these are discussed.
