Описание: This one-semester text is designed for an upper-level majors course. Vertebrates features a unique emphasis on function and evolution of vertebrates, complete anatomical detail, and excellent pedagogy. Vertebrate groups are organized phylogenetically, and their systems discussed within such a context. Morphology is foremost, but the author has developed and integrated an understanding of function and evolution into the discussion of anatomy of the various systems.

Автор: Zboray Название: Atlas of Comparative Sectional Anatomy of 6 invertebrates and 5 vertebrates ISBN: 3211997628 ISBN-13(EAN): 9783211997628 Издательство: Springer Рейтинг: Цена: 130030 T Наличие на складе: Поставка под заказ. Описание: This atlas contains 189 coloured images taken from transversal, horizontal and sagittal sections of eleven organisms widely used in university teaching. Six invertebrate and five vertebrate species - from the nematode worm (Ascaris suum) to mammals (Rattus norvegicus) - are shown in detailed images. Studying the macrosections with unaided eyes, with a simple magnifier or binocular microscope might be of great help to accomplish traditional anatomical studies and to establish a certain spatial experience/space perception. This volume will be of great interest for biology students, researchers and teachers of comparative anatomy. It might act as supporting material of practical courses. Furthermore, medical practitioners, agricultural specialists and researchers having an interest in comparative anatomy might also benefit from it.

Название: Endocrines and Osmoregulation / A Comparative Account in Vertebrates ISBN: 3540426833 ISBN-13(EAN): 9783540426837 Издательство: Springer Рейтинг: Цена: 104020 T Наличие на складе: Есть у поставщика Поставка под заказ. Описание: The new edition of P.J. Bentley's established text describes the physiological mechanisms utilized by different vertebrate species to adapt to the differences and vicissitudes of water and salt availability in their natural environments. The book is especially concerned with the roles of endocrine glands in coordinating and maintaining such osmoregulation. It provides information about the environmental stresses and physiological and endocrine processes involved in the osmoregulation in each phyletic order of the vertebrates, and it describes the physiological adaptations they have evolved to foster their survival in osmotically hostile habitats. The second edition provides a comprehensive update utilizing the considerable amount of new data which have been collected over the past years. From a review of the previous edition: "I strongly recommend it as an essential reading and reference book for younger and older workers alike". Nature

Описание: Vertebrate evolution is studied through comparative anatomy and functional morphology of extant vertebrates as well as the fossil record. The origin, basic anatomy, and adaptation of all the major groups of vertebrates are covered in this book, together with consideration of the evolutionary processes underlying their radiation. Topics discussed include analyzing morphological and molecular data, early diversification of vertebrates, the evolutionary radiation of dinosaurs, and the origin of mammals.

Описание: This series of volumes represents a comprehensive and integrated treatment of reproduction in vertebrates from fishes of all sorts through mammals. It is designed to provide a readable, coordinated description of reproductive basics in each group of vertebrates as well as an introduction to the latest trends in reproductive research and our understanding of reproductive events. Whereas each chapter and each volume is intended to stand alone as a review of that topic or vertebrate group, respectively, the volumes are prepared so as to provide a thorough topical treatment across the vertebrates. Terminology has been standardized across the volumes to reduce confusion where multiple names exist in the literature, and a comprehensive glossary of these terms and their alternative names is provided.
Автор: Edited by Reinmar Hager, Clara Jones Название: Reproductive Skew in Vertebrates ISBN: 0521864097 ISBN-13(EAN): 9780521864091 Издательство: Cambridge Academ Рейтинг: Цена: 54520 T Наличие на складе: Есть у поставщика Поставка под заказ. Описание: Reproductive skew is the study of how reproduction is partitioned in animal societies. In many social animals reproduction is shared unequally and leads to a reproductive skew among group members. Skew theory investigates the genetic and ecological factors causal to the partitioning of reproduction in animal groups and may yield fundamental insights into the evolution of animal sociality. This book brings together new theory and empirical work, mostly in vertebrates, to test assumptions and predictions of skew models. It also gives an updated critical review of skew theory. The team of leading contributors cover a wide range of species, from insects to humans, and discuss both ultimate (evolutionary) and proximate (immediate) factors influencing reproductive skew. Academic researchers and graduate students alike with an interest in evolution and sociality will find this material stimulating and exciting.
Название: Vomeronasal chemoreception in vertebrates - a study of the second nose ISBN: 1860942695 ISBN-13(EAN): 9781860942693 Издательство: World Scientific Publishing Рейтинг: Цена: 46980 T Наличие на складе: Поставка под заказ. Описание: The vomeronasal organ is an olfactory structure in the nose, originally described in 1813 by the Danish court veterinarian Ludwig Jacobson. After some 150
years interest in it was reawakened, following the discovery of its key role in social and sexual responses. The organ serves to alert the emotional brain to the presence of specific
semiochemicals or signal molecules, which identify sex or status.
Typically, such scents elicit responses at a non-conscious level - altering internal chemistry (hormones) in
reaction to odours from the social environment (pheromones). The importance of vomerolfaction has recently been confirmed by findings on the genetic basis of smell. This book surveys
the biology of the "Organ of Jacobson" from toads to tamarins.
It provides an analysis of the neural pathway which processes pheromonal information delivered by the
"second nose" to the brain. Vomeronasal olfaction is examined in its evolutionary perspective, from molecular capture of scents to the consequent changes in reproductive

Описание: Chemical Ecology of Vertebrates is the first book to focus exclusively on the chemically-mediated interactions between vertebrates including fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals, and other animals and plants. Reviewing the latest research in three core areas - pheromones (where the interactions are between members of the same species), and interspecific interactions involving allomones (where the sender benefits) and kairomones (where the receiver benefits), it pulls together information from widely scattered technical literature in many different disciplines into a coherent whole. Chapters on the environment, properties of odour signals and production and release of chemosignals set the stage for discussion of more complex behavioural topics. While the main focus is ecological, dealing with behaviour and interactions in the field, it also covers chemoreception, orientation and navigation, the development of behaviour and the practical applications of chemosignals.
