During the last 20 years new techniques in osteology have yielded findings on Maya diet and health that challenge the ecological model of collapse.  This volume, which includes an index bibliography of the first 150 years of Maya osteology, brings together for the first time a broad spectrum of bioarchaeologists and reveals remarkable data on Maya genetic relationship, demographic, and diseases.
