Amniote origins

completing the transition to land


Description

Amniote Origins integrates modern systematic methods with studies of functional and physiological processes, and illustrates how studies of paleobiology can be illuminated by studies of neonatology. For this reason, comparative anatomists and physiologists, functional morphologists, zoologists, and paleontologists will all find this unique volume very useful. Inspired by the prospect of integrating fields that have long been isolated from one another, Amniote Origins provides a thorough and interdisciplinary synthesis of one of the classic transitions of evolutionary history. Key Features * Integrates modern systematic methods with studies of functional and physiological processes * Illustrates how studies of paleobiology can be illuminated by studies of neonatology * Provides a thorough and interdisciplinary synthesis of one of the classic transitions of evolutionary history.
