Specialists from South Australia, interstate and overseas were employed to address a range of research areas, including chronology (Pate et al 1998; Prescott et al 1983; Pretty 1986, 1988), mortuary practices (Pate 1984; Pretty 1977), demography (Prokopec 1979), population biology (Brown 1989; Pardoe 1995; Pietrusewsky 1984; Pretty et al 1998), palaeopathology (Pretty and Kricun 1989; Prokopec and Pretty 1991), dental anthropology (Smith et al 1988), forensic science (Pretty 1975), palaeodiet (Pate 2000), palaeoecology (Parker 1989; Paton 1983), palaeobotany (Boyd and Pretty 1989), soil chemistry (Pate et al 1989), and earth sciences (Firman 1984; Rogers 1990).

9, 10) Unfortunately, the country's black populations have not been studied from the perspective of dental and craniofacial morphology, and most studies within the scope of dental anthropology focus on the forensic approach and on the study of oral morbidity and dental morphology of the pre-Hispanic populations.
Hence, and given the ethnic diversity of the Colombian population, studies should be conducted involving the groups that predominantly make up the Colombian population (Andean Mestizos, Caribbean Mestizos, Afro-Colombians, and Indigenous groups), to generate new knowledge applicable to forensic sciences (age estimation within the basic identification quatrain) and dental anthropology (biological information of past populations based on dental development).
