Abstract
Anatomical crown height (ACH) and the severity and pattern of occlusal and interproximal attrition were recorded for teeth of A. africanus and A. robustus. There was a negative and highly significant correlation between ACH and attrition for each tooth (r = -0.56 to -0.96), and crown height for the two species was significantly different (p < 0.05) with attrition scores held constant. From the regression equation y = bx + a, the range of ACH values for any degree of attrition was calculated for each tooth in both species. These values provide standards for establishing the affinities of unidentified early hominid teeth.
