Abstract

Molar tooth buds of known aged baboon fetuses were removed and stained in alizarin red S. The sequences of cusp calcification and coalescences were studied in the deciduous molars. The cusp calcification sequence was similar in the baboon, rhesus monkey, and man; the coalescence pattern of the baboon and rhesus monkey differed from that of man.
