    Tracy E Popowics
    University of Washington, Seattle, Washington 98195, USA
    J Morphol 256:322-41. 2003
    ..A few species possess postcanine dentitions that do not correspond with diet; the absence of dental-dietary correlation in these species suggests that other factors, such as phylogeny, are important in determining dental form...

    T E Popowics
    University of Washington, Burke Museum, Seattle, Washington 98195, USA
    J Morphol 237:69-90. 1998
    ..This suggests that carnivoran species may share a common path of early development that specifies the ontogeny of homologous tooth features and that in later stages developmental differences result in species-specific tooth forms...
  3. ncbi request reprint The fracture behaviour of human and pig molar cusps
    T E Popowics
    Department of Geological Sciences, The Burke Museum, University of Washington, Seattle, WA 98195, USA
    Arch Oral Biol 46:1-12. 2001
    ..Test results reflected fundamentally different means of crown stress management that correspond with phylogenetic differences in masticatory function...

    Department of Oral Biology, University of Washington, Seattle, Washington, DC 98195, USA
    Arch Oral Biol 49:595-605. 2004

    T Popowics
    Department of Oral Biology, University of Washington, Seattle, WA 98195, United States
    J Biomech 42:1961-6. 2009
    ..The PDL interface between occluding teeth and alveolar bone is likely to stiffen the system, allowing transmission of occlusal loads. Alveolar strains may provide a stimulus for bone growth in the alveolar process and crest...

    K Yeh
    Department of Oral Biology, University of Washington, Seattle, WA 98195, United States
    Arch Oral Biol 55:663-9. 2010
