Descrizione libro Tata McGraw-Hill Education Pvt. Ltd., 2005. Softcover. Condizione libro: New. 4th edition. 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. Key features Update and Revised. Many changes and revisions have been made throughout this new edition, some major, some small. The chapters on biological design, life history (embryology), circulatory system, digestive system, endocrine system, and new sections in the concluding chapter have been substantially revised. Evo-Devo. An entirely new introductory section on evolution and development has been added to Chapter 5, based on molecular embryology but relating the importance of genomic control systems to morphological development. Origin of Flight. After some decades of debate, fossil finds and experimental evidence have produced new ideas about the origin of flight in birds. This is discussed in a new section within the skeletal system. Serving the Student. Features of the textbook have been expanded to make its presentation more clear and inviting. The use of color has been expanded which brightens these sections of the book. But color has also been used to better correlate and compare structures between figures in these chapters. Many illustrations are new, revised, or re-labeled to improve clarity. Cross references direct students to other areas of the text where they can refresh their understanding or clarify an unfamiliar subject. Important literature is cited at the end of each chapter, and Web links connect them to further references and resources. A glossary of definitions is included at the end of the book with appendices covering vector algebra, International System of Units, common Greek and Latin combining forms, and classification of the chordates. Table of contents: Chapter 1 Introduction Chapter 2 Origin of Chordates Chapter 3 The Vertebrate Story Chapter 4 Biological Design Chapter 5 Life History Chapter 6 Integument Chapter 7 Skeletal System: The Skull Chapter 8 Skeletal System: The Axial Skeleton Chapter 9 Skeletal System: The Appendicular Skeleton Chapter 10 The Muscular System Chapter 11 The Respiratory System Chapter 12 The Circulatory System Chapter 13 The Digestive System Chapter 14 The Urogenital System Chapter 15 The Endocrine System Chapter 16 The Nervous System Chapter 17 Sensory Organs Chapter 18 Conclusions Printed Pages: 800.
