Most often, dental morphological data is collected in a museum setting. In this case, the process of data collection is relatively straightforward in theory, but can become complicated by the realities of working with human skeletal or dental cast collections. One hopes the process begins by settling down at a table in a museum, lifting a pristine skull and mandible out of a box that has been brought to you by a collections assistant, and finding all of the teeth present, clean, free of pathology, unworn, and in place. Then one simply refers to this manual, and perhaps to the ASUDAS plaques, and records the scores onto paper, or directly into a computerized spreadsheet or database.
