Definition of Auxology

Auxology is a meta-term covering the study of all aspects of human physical growth (though it is also a fundamental of biology, generally speaking).

Auxology is a highly multi-disciplinary science involving health sciences/medicine (pediatrics, general practice, endocrinology, neuroendocrinology, physiology, epidemiology), and to a lesser extent: nutrition, genetics, anthropology, anthropometry, ergonomics, history, economic history, economics, socioeconomics, sociology, public health and psychology, among others.

Studying Human Growth and Development
Ed.: Michael Hermanussen

"I highly recommend this comprehensive, educational and entertaining book on all aspects of auxology by Professor Hermanussen. It's a fascinating read, packed with the facts you need if you want to get up-to-date with the current state of art in the field. It is richly illustrated with 270 colour figures, making it easy to just browse. More in-depth articles are provided by internationally recognized specialists of their respective areas."

Jani Söderhäll, Managing Director, PC PAL

"The book is of greatest interest to all pediatricians, to medical students and students of human biology, health workers, nutritionists, medical staff and professionals interested in child and adolescent growth and development."

International Journal of Anthropology

"It has lots of bright, easy to understand diagrams, photos, funny cartoons, and imaginary letters and conversations to break up the text, which is in bite-size chunks, and full of coloured words and bold phrases to aid skim-readers."

Professor Gary Butler, MD
