The Dissection of Vertebrates provides students with a manual combining pedalogical effective text with high-quality, accurate, and attractive visual references. Using a systemic approach within a systematic framework for each vertebrate, this book covers several animals commonly used in providing an anatomical transition sequence. Seven animals are covered: lamprey, shark, perch, mudpuppy, frog, pigeon and cat.
The following are new to this edition: revision of the systemic section of the introductory chapter to maintain currency; corrections to several parts of the existing text and images; new comparative skull sections included as part of the existing vertebrates; and, companion site with image bank. This title is winner of the NYSM Jury award for the Rock Dove Air Sacs, Lateral and Ventral Views illustration. Expertly rendered award-winning illustrations accompany the detailed, clear dissection direction. It is organized by individual organism to facilitate classroom presentation. It offers coverage of a wide range of vertebrates. There are full-color, strong pedagogical aids in a convenient lay-flat presentation. This title includes expanded and updated features on phylogenic coverage, mudpuppy musculature and comparative mammalian skulls.
"This manual is destined to be a must for the present generation of beginning and intermediate students in the anatomy of vertebrates. It blends a familiar language with the formalism and cadence of Victorian descriptions, all the while maintaining clear directions on dissection procedures, and amazing, realistic, art, rendering its reading a vivid experience. It is strongly based in the conceptual framework of phylogeny but without losing the practical spirit of manuals. The incorporation of new sections on examples often not (or ever) included in other works is a bonus that broadens its scope, flexibility, and utility." Dr Sergio F Vizcaino, Departmento Cientifico Paleontologia Vertebrados, Museo de la Plata, Argentina "This new lab manual by De Iuliis and Pulera will quickly become the standard for veterinary and vertebrate zoology courses alike. The artwork is simply the best available, and appears more true-to-life than any others. The choice of inclu
