Saltation and Stasis in Human Growth and Development: Evidence, Methods and Theory
This critique of saltatory growth is much needed. For this reason the International Association of Human Auxology selected the subject to be the first in their new book series. Michelle Lampl, together with biologists and physicians who are actively engaged in this field of study, present the evidence for saltation and stasis, survey the methods involved, and assess the current theoretical position.Saltation and stasis in human growth and development brings together evidence from cell and molecular biology, bone histology, and endocrine secretory patterns, alongside descriptive growth data from all phases of human development and animal studies. The authors discuss the methods required for data collection and analysis of data which focus on the crucial issue of measurement over time. The theoretical parameters of normal and pathological human growth that unfold from this research have wide-ranging implications for further understanding growth across a number of disciplines.
