It includes hundreds of illustrations that show the homologies between the muscles of all the major extant vertebrate taxa. It supplies a list of more than a thousand synonyms used by other authors to designate these muscles. It reviews data obtained in the fields of evolutionary developmental biology, molecular biology, and embryology, explaining how this data can help in understanding the evolution and homologies of vertebrate muscles.
