Summary
This is an essential primer and manual for using fossil bone histology to investigate the biology of extinct tetrapods. Twelve experts summarise advances in the field over the past three decades, reviewing fundamental basics of bone micro-anatomy and physiology. Research specimen selection, thin-section preparation, and data analysis are addressed in detail. The authors also outline methods and issues in bone growth rate calculation and chronological age determination, as well as examining broader questions of behaviour, ecology, and evolution by studying the microstructure of bone
