From the Publisher:

Complete emphasis on biological, physical, and evolutionary aspects of anatomy is the focus of Comparative Anatomy of the Vertebrates. Its system-by-system progression integrates evolutionary theory and animal relationships to foster your students' understanding of anatomical functions.
This new edition features new cladograms (presented as line art figures) used as "phylogenetic summaries" and are balanced by an appendix dedicated to traditional Linnaen classification.
Body systems approach examines different types of vertebrates by looking at each system (digestive, circulatory, etc.) separately.
Taxonomy (names) and phylogeny (evolutionary relationships) have been updated throughout.
Learning aids include Links to the Internet, Critical Thinking Questions, Chapter Outlines, Boldface Key Terms, Chapter Summaries, and Suggested Readings.
This revision includes updates throughout to be consistent with the most current research in Comparative Anatomy.
This text covers the patterns of anatomy when comparing vertebrates. It also includes patterns among parts of the biological process- which includes similarities due to convergence, similarities due to accident, and similarities in terms of embryology.
The core of this text emphasizes comparative aspects of vertebrate morphology. This is a straightforward, no frills text that has been streamlined as a result of multiple revisions.
