This full-color manual is a unique guide for students conducting the comparative study of representative vertebrate animals. It is appropriate for courses in comparative anatomy, vertebrate zoology, or any course in which the featured vertebrates are studied.
This high-quality laboratory manual may accompany any comparative anatomy text, but correlates directly to Kardong's Vertebrates: Comparative Anatomy, Function, Evolution text. This text carefully guides students through dissections and is richly illustrated. First and foremost, the basic animal architecture is presented in a clear and concise manner. This richly illustrated manual carefully guides students through dissections. Throughout the dissections, the authors pause strategically to bring the students attention to the significance of the material they have just covered..
Ideal for undergraduate comparative anatomy courses, this classic manual combines comprehensive illustrations, text, and a clear, readable design. Organisms include protochordates, lampry, dogfish shark, mud puppy, and cat.
The Dissection of Vertebrates
Author: Gerardo De Iuliis, Gerald DeIuliis, Dino Pulera
The Dissection of Vertebrates covers several vertebrates commonly used in providing a transitional sequence in morphology. With illustrations on seven vertebrates – lamprey, shark, perch, mudpuppy, frog, cat, pigeon – this is the first book of its kind to include high-quality, digitally rendered illustrations. This book received the Award of Excellence in an Illustrated Medical Book from the Association of Medical Illustrators. It is organized by individual organism to facilitate classroom presentation. This illustrated, full-color primary dissection manual is ideal for use by students or practitioners working with vertebrate anatomy. This book is also recommended for researchers in vertebrate and functional morphology and comparative anatomy. The result of this exceptional work offers the most comprehensive treatment than has ever before been available. * Received the Award of Excellence in an Illustrated Medical Book from the Association of Medical Illustrators * Expertly rendered award-winning illustrations accompany the detailed, clear dissection direction * Organized by individual organism to facilitate classroom presentation * Offers coverage of a wide range of vertebrates * Full-color, strong pedagogical aids in a convenient lay-flat presentation
Author: Kenneth V. Kardong
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. The emphasis is on biological, physical, and evolutionary aspects of anatomy with a system-by-system progression. Taxonomy (names) and phylogeny (evolutionary relationships) have been updated throughout, and learning aids include: links to the Internet, critical thinking questions, chapter outlines, boldface key terms, chapter summaries, and suggested readings.
A Dissection Guide and Atlas to the Mink by David G. Smith and Michael P. Schenk is designed to provide students with a comprehensive introduction to the anatomy of the mink. This full-color dissection guide and atlas gives the student carefully worded directions for learning basic mammalian anatomy through the use of a mink specimen.
The purpose of this book, now in its third edition, is to introduce the morphology of vertebrates in a context that emphasizes a comparison of structire and of the function of structural units. The comparative method involves the analysis of the history of structure in both developmental and evolutionary frameworks. The nature of adaptation is the key to this analysis. Adaptation of a species to its environment, as revealed by its structure, function, and reproductive success, is the product of mutation and natural selection–the process of evolution. The evolution of structure and function, then, is the theme of this book which presents, system by system, the evolution of structure and function of vertebrates. Each chapter presents the major evolutionary trends of an organ system, with instructions for laboratory exploration of these trends included so the student can integrate concept with example.
Functional approach to morphology--treatment is unique as to organization, thoroughness, and extent of biomechanical analysis. * Profusely illustrated with high quality original artwork. * Comment boxes evaluate points of controversy and note inadequately understood phenomena.
With a new chapter on zebrafish embryos and thoroughly updated terminology, Laboratory Studies is the most comprehensive book/laboratory guide available in the field of developmental biology and embryology, and it allows readers to study material independently–without the need for supplemental materials. It features broad coverage (sea urchin, frog, chick, mouse, pig, and zebrafish–all popular educational and research models) and is the only guide to provide detailed descriptions of a wide-range of developing stages. Sea Urchin Embryos, Zebrafish Embryos, Frog Embryos, Chick Embryos, Mouse Embryos, Pig Embryos ,Hands-On Studies. Intended for those interested in laboratory studies of vertebrate and invertebrate embryos
Mammalian Anatomy: The Cat
Author: Aurora Sebastiani, Dale W. Fishbeck
Publisher: Morton Publishing Company
This full-color dissection guide is intended for students taking Mammalian Anatomy, Comparative Anatomy, General Biology, or Anatomy & Physiology courses and contains 175 photographs plus many full-color illustrations. The combination of a good anatomy text, clear discussions of dissection techniques, and well-executed photographs and illustrations makes this a definitive book in biology curricula.
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.
This atlas contains 189 coloured images taken from transversal, horizontal and sagittal sections of eleven organisms widely used in university teaching. Six invertebrate and five vertebrate species – from the nematode worm (Ascaris suum) to mammals (Rattus norvegicus) – are shown in detailed images. Studying the macrosections with unaided eyes, with a simple magnifier or binocular microscope might be of great help to accomplish traditional anatomical studies and to establish a certain spatial experience/space perception. This volume will be of great interest for biology students, researchers and teachers of comparative anatomy. It might act as supporting material of practical courses. Furthermore, medical practitioners, agricultural specialists and researchers having an interest in comparative anatomy might also benefit from it.

Widely praised for its comprehensive coverage and clear writing style, this best-selling text explores how the anatomy, physiology, ecology, and behaviour of animals interact to produce organisms that function effectively in their environments and how lineages of organisms change throughevolutionary time.
