9780073040585: Vertebrates Comparative Anatomy, Function, Evolution

This one-semester text is designed for an upper-level majors course. Vertebrates features a unique emphasis on function and evolution of vertebrates, complete anatomical detail, and excellent pedagogy. Vertebrate groups are organized phylogenetically, and their systems discussed within such a context. Morphology is foremost, but the author has developed and integrated an understanding of function and evolution into the discussion of anatomy of the various systems.

From the Publisher:

Completely updated art program includes impressive morphological detail, making the text illustrations valuable teaching tools. Over 32 pages feature illustrations that use full-color in a functional way to help students visualize concepts.
Integration of evolutionary and functional information helps students better understand the anatomy of vertebrates.
The supporting laboratory manual by Zalisko/Kardong is both a dissection guide and a pictoral atlas of specimen anatomy. This manual contains a new Student Art Notebook which allows students a space to make notes on over 80 key art figures!
The unique summary chapter serves to tie all the ends together into one complete "story."
Related web links supporting content can now be found at the end of each chapter, as well on the text's web site.
This new edition will be supported by a web site featuring: chapter-by-chapter references, chapter-by-chapter web links, and essay questions with immediate student feedback.
Throughout the lab manual that accompanies this new edition, there will be a "book" icon in the margin next to material that is also reflected in the text. These icons will be page-referenced, so students can easily locate the material in the main text for reference or further reading.
