Turner 1970; Turner, Nichol, and Scott 1991), crown wear (Molnar 1971, 1972; Scott 1979; Smith 1984; Lovejoy 1985), and markers of developmental stress, especially linear enamel hypoplasia (Goodman and Armelagos 1985; Goodman and Rose 1990). Studies on the oral health of past and present populations received increasing attention, especially the negative impacts of agriculture on dental caries (Hillson 1979; Turner 1979; Lukacs 1981, 1982). The International Symposium of Dental Morphology, which first met in Copenhagen, Denmark in 1965, became a regular conference fixture and produced five edited volumes that highlighted research in dental ontogeny, genetics, and variation (Pedersen, Dahlberg, and Alexandersen 1967; Dahlberg 1971; Butler and Joysey 1978; Kurtén 1978; Russell, Santoro, and Sigogneau‐Russell 1988).

This subject has captured the imagination of dental researchers for a very long time (see Donoghue 2002). They are often linked with scales and the appearance of the jaw. Most current ideas trace to Ørvig (1967, 1977), who argued that teeth are differ­ entiated from “odontodes,” dentin structures that enclosed internal pulp cavities housing blood vessels and attached to bases of bone or cartilage. The small, tooth‐like placoid scales, or denticles, that give shark skin its sandpaper‐like texture are a good model.
