Abstract
Knowing the total number of perikymata on the crown of a tooth is valuable when estimating enamel formation times. Studies on enamel formation times and perikymata counts have often been carried out on relatively limited geographical modern human samples. However, they have identified not only differences in the total number of perikymata between modern humans and Neandertals, but also it shows distinct patterns of enamel growth between populations. Widening our knowledge of modern human variability of the total number of perikymata and the pattern of growth in crown height is clearly important.
