Format: Loose Leaf
This lab manual was a supplement text that I was not required to buy however we ended up relying on it heavily in the laboratory so much that I found I needed my own copy, rather than the limited few available. It is fully color and all the structures of Necturus, Squalus and the cat are shown in high detail photographs that are extremely useful when you are looking at your own sample. They also provide more explanation about the function and location of each structure.

The one disadvantage that this manual has though is that it does not provide instruction in dissection to see these samples (one reason why my college does not rely on it as a main laboratory manual) and only covers three vertebrate systems and none of the hemichordates.

I believe that it is a worthwhile investment though if you are taking a comparative anatomy course (Such as the one at Florida Tech....) to have this text as reference.

Currently I am enrolled in Comparative Vertebrate Anatomy and this book has been extremely helpful with dissections, especially when I am trying to locate and differentiate between all of the structures. I would highly recomend this book for anyone in a similar class. However, I will warn you that some of the terms have not been converted to animal physiology nomenclature and therefore some conversions in you dialect are needed.
