Jennifer Byrnes (Anthropology) has co-authored a chapter that appears in a new edited volume, Case Studies in Forensic Anthropology: Bonified Skeletons, edited by Heather Garvin and Natalie Langley. The chapter, "Globalization, Transnationalism, and the Analytical Feasibility of Ancestry Estimation," co-authored with Joseph Hefner (Michigan State University), reviews two unique forensic anthropology cases that utilize a relatively new method in estimating ancestry in the human skeleton in order to illustrate both the challenges and capabilities of applying the new ancestry method of macromorphoscopic traits. The volume is a compilation of diverse forensic case studies meant as learning opportunities for students and professionals for situations that they may not normally encounter.
