This book has been written taking into consideration that the study of the anatomy of vertebrates has changed drastically in recent years. Previously it was customary to make a classical study of only a few commonly available representative examples. Now it is necessary to also give detailed comparative accounts of organs and organ systems present in all extant forms. The Drs Saxena have introduced the structure-function concept at the level of organs and organ systems, thus providing the reader with a fundamental understanding of the synthesis of comparative anatomy, and in consequence with an understanding of comparative evolutionary morphology.They have presented the diversity of vertebrate organisation of each organ system in 12 chapters, each one containing outstanding, clear, student-friendly line drawings - easy to understand and to reproduce. "Comparative Anatomy of Vertebrates" is a welcome new title in the fields of biology, animal science and evolutionary science, and will be an excellent text book for students on such courses.
