About the Book
The book describes the diversity of various vertebrate groups (ranging from the oldest living fishes to the relatively more recent groups to evolve such as mammals) and their features. The various chapters in the book deal with the structures of body systems including organs and tissues, as well as their functions and how they differ in various vertebrate groups. Evolution of vertebrate groups from the earliest extinct ancestors to the living vertebrates has been covered as well as related groups that are now extinct. Illustrations have been included to clarify various issues to the reader. Features that enable vertebrates to adapt to aquatic and terrestrial environments they inhabit have been discussed. The book should serve as a text for students of vertebrate morphology.
