Functional Anatomy of Vertebrates an E Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

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. The text contains all of the material taught in classic comparative anatomy courses, but integrates this material with current research in functional anatomy. This integration adds a new dimension to our understanding of structure and helps students understand the evolution of vertebrates.

Synopsis:

This title introduces students to the groups of vertebrates and explores the anatomical evolution of vertebrates within the context of the functional interrelationship of organs and the changing environments to which vertebrates have adapted.
