    The Museum of Vertebrate Zoology, located on the campus of the University of California, Berkeley, is a leading center of herpetological research in the United States. We offer a brief account of the principal figures associated with the collection and of the most important events in the history of herpetology in the MVZ during its first 93 years.

The purpose of this book, now in its third edition, is to introduce the morphology of vertebrates in a context that emphasizes a comparison of structire and of the function of structural units. The comparative method involves the analysis of the history of structure in both developmental and evolutionary frameworks.

The nature of adaptation is the key to this analysis.5/5(1). Because many of the morphological, physiological and behavioural novelties of vertebrates are derived from neural crest cells, it is thought that the origin of this cell population was an.
