The Anatomy and Physiology of the Mammalian Larynx
In this unique book, Sir Donald Harrison draws on his wide-ranging experience as a surgeon and comparative anatomist to produce an authoritative and detailed account of the anatomy and physiology of the mammalian larynx. His investigation of the larynx has involved the study of over 1200 specimens of mammalian larynges from around the world, as well as using data from his own clinical experiences. The comparative morphology of the larynx is discussed from a developmental and functional perspective, and the involvement of the larynx in respiration, locomotion and vocalization is highlighted. Throughout the book the relationship of structure to function is stressed, and the clinical relevance of features of the human larynx is emphasized.
