This superbly illustrated version retains its logical organization and clear, lively style that have made previous editions so popular. The first section contains a survey of vertebrates with brief descriptions that stress typical features and characteristics. Part two uses the customary organ system approach to present the general structure of the classes and subclasses of vertebrates and to review structural evidence for their evolutionary relationships. Lastly, the book provides knowledge and analysis of the major functional vertebrate groups.
