DESANTOLO, Bárbara  and  BERNAL, Valeria. Los estudios de histología ósea en antropología biológica. Rev Arg Antrop Biol [online]. 2016, vol.18, n.2. ISSN 1514-7991.

Studies on bone tissue of both extant and prehistoric individuals provide unique information about different processes that occurred during the life of individuals -e.g. pathological, biomechanical- as well as after their death -e.g. taphonomic. In Argentina, the microstructural organization of bone tissue has been scarcely analyzed in bioarchaeological research. This issue of Revista Argentina de Antropología Biológica (Argentinean Journal of Biological Anthropology) contains six works that reflect the diversity of the issues addressed and the histological techniques employed in paleohistology. The selection of works provides an overview of the relevant contribution of bone micro-structures to various subjects with the aim of creating interest within the community of biological anthropologists and bioarchaeologists, and promoting the development of new lines of research. Rev Arg Antrop Biol 18(2), 2016.

Keywords : palaeohistology, human bone tissue, micros.
