Summary: The anatomy of the jawless lamprey is compared with the anatomy of three vertebrates with jaws- the shark, the mudpuppy and the cat. The lamprey represents a modern example of early ancestral vertebrates while the shark is a reasonable example of the fish condition, the mudpuppy possesses several characteristics of the ancestral tetrapod, and the cat shows a suite of characteristics associated with mammals. Homologies among these vertebrates are emphasized. more --The major systems of each organism are covered in depth and in logical sequence.

--NEW to this edition - The glossary was expanded to include additional terms.
