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:

Deemed a classic for its reading level and high-quality illustrations, this respected text is ideal for your one-semester Comparative Anatomy course. For the ninth edition, George Kent is joined by new co-author Bob Carr.

Book News Annotation:

Presents functional and comparative morphology within a developmental and evolutionary framework, combining data from classical comparative anatomy with current developmental, ecological, and theoretical research. Early chapters cover major organ systems, evolutionary concepts, protochordates, craniates, and early craniate morphogenesis. Remaining chapters discuss the craniate body with references to outgroups. Pedagogical features include chapter outlines and summaries, Internet links, questions, and a glossary, as well as color diagrams and b&w photos. This edition updates systematic relationships and taxonomy, and includes new tables to summarize complex details. For biology majors and preprofessional students in medicine, dentistry, and allied health fields.

An excellent book to study the evolution as well as the homology of the organs in vertebrates. It's a marvelous book for a zoologist and a must have.
