9780126764604: Amniote Origins: Completing the Transition to Land

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.

From the Back Cover:

The first terrestrial vertebrates evolved a group of membranes to surround and protect developing embryos. The amnion is one such membrane, containing the amniotic fluid of developing reptiles, birds, and mammals. Amniote Origins, an integration of modern systematic methods with studies of functional and physiological processes, illustrates how studies of paleobiology can be illuminated by studies of neontology. 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-the transition from aquatic to terrestrial life. This dramatic transition included the evolution of nonpermeable skin, different, less toxic forms of nitrogenous waste, and more efficient forms of locomotion and feeding. This book is a detailed treatment of these and other changes that occurred as these vertebrates comleted this transition. For all these reasons, comparative antomists and physiologists, functional morphologists, zoologists, and paleontologists alike will find this unique volume very useful.
