Atlas of Reptile Development (Hardcover) (Jacqueline E. Moustakas-verho & Raul Diaz)
about this item
This is an atlas of development for several reptiles: a turtle (Trachemys scripta), a specialized lizard (Chamaeleo calyptratus ), a generalized terrestrial lizard (Aspidoscelis uniparens ), a snake (Boaedon (Lamprophis) fuliginosus ), and a crocodilian (Alligator mississippiensis ). With the rise of evo-devo and genomics, the use of reptiles as study organisms has increased. An atlas describing the embryonic development of different species of reptiles is a valuable resource to scientists and students studying developmental biology, herpetology, ecology, evolutionary biology, anatomy, evolutionary morphology, physiology, endocrinology, neurobiology, paleontology, and mathematical modeling.
