This high-quality laboratory manual may accompany any comparative anatomy text, but correlates directly to Kardong'sVertebrates: Comparative Anatomy, Function, Evolutiontext. This lab manual carefully guides students through dissections and is richly illustrated. First and foremost, the basic animal architecture is presented in a clear and concise manner. Throughout the dissections, the authors pause strategically to bring the students' attention to the significance of the material they have just covered.
