The chapters are complemented with color figures showing the basics of bone biology, bone phenotypes and falls prevention interventions and also include tables and flowcharts. Written by investigators (clinicians and basic scientists) in the field of aging bone research, this is a reference guide to geriatricians, gerontologists, endocrinologists, rheumatologists and bone biologists, medical trainees as well as other health professionals (pharmacists, physiotherapists, etc).
