About this book

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.
