Among the novelties of the vertebrate brain, the neural crest, a transient embryonic structure, plays a special role in the development and evolution of almost all vertebrate organs. The vertebrate head is considered an evolutionary addition to the body of protochordates (Gans and Northcutt, ).

    Chordate Origins and Evolution: The Molecular Evolutionary Road to Vertebrates focuses on echinoderms (starfish, sea urchins, and others), hemichordates (acorn worms, etc.), cephalochordates (lancelets), urochordates or tunicates (ascidians, larvaceans and others), and vertebrates. In general, evolution of these groups is discussed. The Endocrinology of Growth, Development, and Metabolism in Vertebrates provides an overview of vertebrate endocrinology. This book aims to strengthen the bridge between medical and comparative endocrinologists by addressing the .

      This book introduces students to the groups of vertebrates and explores the anatomical evolution of vertebrates within the context of the functional interrelationships of organs and the changing environments to which vertebrates have adapted. The text contains all of the material taught in classic comparative anatomy courses, but integrates this material with . Traditional classifications of mammals are based on similarities in structure and function. Increasingly, mammals are being classified on the basis of molecular similarities. DNAanalyses has recently shown that the traditional orders include mammals that may not be closely related.

The book contains illustrations to clarify various issues as well as discussions of vertebrate features that enable adaptation to aquatic and terrestrial environments.

Adaptation of a species to its environment, as revealed by its structure, function, and reproductive success, is the product of mutation and natural selection–the process of evolution.

The evolution of structure and function, then, is the theme of this book which presents, system by system, the evolution of structure and function of vertebrates.

Each chapter presents the major evolutionary trends of an organ system, with instructions for laboratory exploration of these trends included so 5/5(1). Studies of the comparative morphology of the tongues of living vertebrates have revealed how variations in the morphology and function of the organ might be related to evolutional events.

In the phylum Chordata, the closest relatives of the vertebrates are the invertebrate chordates. Based on the molecular analysis of vertebrate and invertebrate genomes (genomics), scientists can determine the evolutionary history of different phylogenetic groups.
