In addition to being the coauthor of Vertebrate Dissection, Dr. No eBook available Amazon. Students premeds can better appreciate human structure by having this historical perspective on how human form evolved. My library Help Advanced Book Search. However, in adding this phylogenetic component, they have not sacrificed functional anatomical aspects. For ideal website functionality and navigation, upgrade your browser.
Resources Cengage Learning is Engaged with Background for the Study of Vertebrate Anatomy. The Reproductive System and Reproduction.
Consistently uses the newer cladistic methodology to analyze vdrtebrates of groups and the evolution of organ systems and introduces students to this methodology, which is now being used by researchers to develop testable hypotheses of relationships and evolution. The discussion of the postcranial skeleton has been divided into two chapters, one on the axial skeleton and one on the appendicular skeleton. Read, highlight, and take notes, across web, tablet, and phone.
All of the material on endocrinology, except for that involving the reproductive hormones, has been consolidated into one chapter. Oral Cavity and Feeding Mechanisms. For vfrtebrates information about these supplements, or to obtain them, contact your Learning Consultant.

Introduces students to the basic physical concepts that underlie the evolution of structure, thereby allowing students to understand the thee reasons for, and constrains on, the structure of organs.
Functional Anatomy of Support and Locomotion.
This book introduces students to the groups of vertebrates and explores the anatomical evolution of vertebrates within the context of the functional interrelationships of organs and the changing environments to which vertebrates have adapted.
Organization, Spinal Cord, and Peripheral Nerves.
Two co-authors join Karel Liem and Warren Walker: Thoroughly describes fnuctional evolution of organs and organ systems. From inside the book. The text contains all of the material taught in classic comparative anatomy courses, but integrates this material with current research in functional anatomy. Functional Anatomy of the Vertebrates: Figures Skull Roof Elements is a good example of this feature. Liem Snippet view – Protection, Support, and Movement.
Time for an upgrade The Nervous System II: Background for the Study of Vertebrate. Early Development and Comparative Embryology. The book is the most current of its kind available. The three chapters on the sense organs and the nervous system reflect the extraordinary strides that have been made in the field of comparative vertebrate neurobiology. This integration adds a new dimension to our understanding of structure and helps students understand the evolution of vertebrates.
