  • Steyn, Maryna; Iscan, M.Y.; De Kock, M.; Kranioti, E.F.; Michalodimitrakis, M.; L'Abbe, Ericka Noelle (Wiley, 2010-09)
    When archaeological skeletons are assessed, the prevalence (and patterns of bone involvement) of trauma is important. The number and pattern of fractures can be used to gain insight into the occurrence of interpersonal ...
  • Oettle, Anna Catherina; Demeter, F.P. (Fabrice); L'Abbe, Ericka Noelle (Wiley, 2017-01)
    The variable development of the zygoma, dictating its shape and size variations among ancestral groups, has important clinical implications and valuable anthropological and evolutionary inferences. The purpose of the ...
  • Stull, Kyra Elizabeth; Kenyhercz, Michael W.; L'Abbe, Ericka Noelle (Elsevier, 2014-12)
    Population history and positive assortative mating directs gene flow in such a way that biological differences are recognized among groups. In turn, forensic anthropologists quantify biological differences to estimate ...
  • L'Abbe, Ericka Noelle; Keough, Natalie; Nawrocki, S.J.; Creative Studios, Dept of Education Innovation, University of Pretoria (2008-09-29)
    FORDISC 3.0 (FD3) is an analytical program distributed by the University of Tennessee that employs discriminant analysis to assist in assessing sex, ancestry, and stature from unidentified skeletal remains. While American ...
  • Hutchinson, Erin Frances; L'Abbe, Ericka Noelle; Oettle, Anna Catherina (Elsevier, 2012-04)
    Quantification of skeletal data has been shown to be an effective and reliable method of demonstrating variation in human growth as well as for monitoring and interpreting growth. In South Africa as well as internationally, ...
  • Keough, Natalie; L'Abbe, Ericka Noelle; Steyn, M.; Pretorius, S. (Elsevier, 2015-01)
    Forensic anthropologists are tasked with interpreting the sequence of events from death to the discovery of a body. Burned bone often evokes questions as to the timing of burning events. The purpose of this study was to ...
  • Steyn, Maryna; Becker, Piet J.; L’Abbé, Ericka Noelle; Scholtz, Yvette; Myburgh, Y. (Elsevier Ireland Ltd, 2011-08)
    Forensic anthropologists frequently use measurements of the human skeleton to determine sex and ancestry. Since the establishment of the Daubert criteria of admissibility of scientific evidence to court, methodologies ...
  • Ridel, A.F. (Alison); Demeter, F.; Galland, M.; L'Abbe, Ericka Noelle; Vandermeulen, Dirk; Oettle, Anna Catherina (Elsevier, 2020-01)
    Manual landmarking is used in several manual and semi-automated prediction guidelines for approximation of the nose. The manual placement of landmarks may, however, render the analysis less repeatable due to observer ...
  • Brits, D.M. (Desire Marguerita); Steyn, Maryna; L'Abbe, Ericka Noelle (2008-09-29)
    Forensic anthropologists play an important role in the identification or exclusion of human remains recovered amongst animal remains and environmental ruins. Accurate separation techniques are needed as small animal bone ...
  • L'Abbe, Ericka Noelle; Coetzee, Francois P.; Loots, Marius (South African Archaeological Society, 2008)
    Thirteen skeletons were excavated in the Pilanesberg National Park and represent a relatively large collection of Iron Age remains from a single location. The aim of this paper is to describe these remains by examining age ...
  • Myburgh, Jolandie; L'Abbe, Ericka Noelle; Steyn, Maryna; Becker, Piet J. (Elsevier, 2013-06)
    The validity of the method in which total body score (TBS) and accumulated degree-days (ADD) are used to estimate the postmortem interval (PMI) is examined. TBS and ADD were recorded for 232 days in northern South Africa, ...
  • L'Abbe, Ericka Noelle; Van Rooyen, Carla (2008-09-29)
    The identification of human skeletal remains begins with the construction of a biological profile of an unknown individual, and includes an assessment of the age, sex, ancestry, and stature. This biological profile originated ...
  • McDowell, Jennifer Leigh; Kenyhercz, Michael W.; L'Abbe, Ericka Noelle (Elsevier, 2015-06)
    Reliable and valid population specific standards are necessary to accurately develop a biological profile, which includes an estimation of peer-reported social identification (Hefner, 2009). During the last 300 ...
  • L'Abbe, Ericka Noelle; Van Rooyen, Carla; Nawrocki, S.J.; Becker, Piet J. (Elsevier, 2011-04)
    Establishing ancestry from a skeleton for forensic purposes has been shown to be difficult. The purpose of this paper is to address the application of thirteen non-metric traits to estimate ancestry in three South African ...
  • L'Abbe, Ericka Noelle; Symes, Steven A.; Pokines, James T.; Cabo, Luis L.; Stull, Kyra Elizabeth; Kuo, Sharon; Raymond, David E.; Randolph-Quinney, Patrick S.; Berger, Lee R. (Nature Publishing Group, 2015-10-13)
    Malapa is one of the richest early hominin sites in Africa and the discovery site of the hominin species, Australopithecus sediba. The holotype and paratype (Malapa Hominin 1 and 2, or MH1 and MH2, respectively) skeletons ...
  • Brits, D.M. (Desire Marguerita); Steyn, Maryna; L'Abbe, Ericka Noelle (Springer, 2014-03)
    Histology is used to describe post-mortem bone alterations, trauma, pathology, age estimation and to separate human and nonhuman bones. Many scholars are however not familiar with the intricate and variable microstructure ...
  • Beaudet, Amelie; Heaton, Jason L.; L'Abbe, Ericka Noelle; Pickering, Travis R.; Stratford, Dominic (South African Society for Animal Science, 2018-11-27)
    The Sterkfontein Caves site is one of the richest early hominin localities in Africa. In addition to significant fossil assemblages from Members 2 and 4 of the Sterkfontein Formation, recent excavations have revealed ...
  • Sutherland, Clarisa; L'Abbe, Ericka Noelle (Academy of Science of South African, 2019-07)
    A decade after the introduction of the topic into the South African public school curriculum, the theory of evolution by natural selection is poorly understood among those who teach it, and that flawed understanding is ...
