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.
AUDIENCE: Ideal for advanced undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, and researchers in all branches of comparative vertebrate biology, including vertebrate paleobiologists, vertebrate anatomists and physiologists, functional morphologists, zoologists, and paleontologists.
