This updated version include a revised systemic section of the introductory chapter; corrections to several parts of the existing text and images; new comparative skull sections included as part of the existing vertebrates; and a companion site with image bank.
This text is designed for 2nd or 3rd year university level comparative vertebrate anatomy courses. Such courses are usually two-semester courses, and may either be a required course or an elective. It is typically a required course for Biology and Zoology majors, as well as for some Forensics and Criminology programs, and offered as an elective for many other non-zoology science majors.Winner of the NYSM Jury award for the Rock Dove Air Sacs, Lateral and Ventral Views illustrationExpertly rendered award-winning illustrations accompany the detailed, clear dissection directionOrganized by individual organism to facilitate classroom presentationOffers coverage of a wide range of vertebratesFull-color, strong pedagogical aids in a convenient lay-flat presentationExpanded and updated features on phylogenic coverage, mudpuppy musculature and comparative mammalian skulls
