This full-color dissection guide is intended for students taking Mammalian Anatomy, Comparative Anatomy, General Biology, or Anatomy & Physiology courses and contains 175 photographs plus many full-color illustrations. The combination of a good anatomy text, clear discussions of dissection techniques, and well-executed photographs and illustrations makes this a definitive book in biology curricula.

Excerpt from Mammalian Anatomy, With Special Reference: To the Cat When the first edition of this book was published less than a half dozen medical schools in the United States required the entering student to have any knowledge of the structure of the lower animals. To-day a knowledge of mammalian anatomy or zoology is considered one of the first requisites for entering upon an intelligent study of medicine. The signs of the times indicate that in the near future no medical school will receive students without some practical knowledge of the structure of a mammal. That the students of modern psychology, the teachers of physiology in all high schools and the directors of all gymnasiums need a definite knowledge of the essentials of the anatomy of a mammal, is becoming more and more evident. These facts and the steady demand for the first edition of this book have been the principal factors in determining the preparation of a second edition. Owing to the gradual acceptance, in part at least, of the B. N. A. nomenclature, numerous changes have been made in the body of the text. The names used in this edition are such as have found favor with the majority of American anatomists. The author's easy and quick method of preparing the skeleton for study is for the first time presented in print. In several instances the language has been made more clear, and several new figures and a glossary have been added which will be of special help to the beginning student of anatomy.

The authors of this book have set out to give an account of the anatomy of the mammal and especially the cat, not only from the structural but also from the functional aspect. This approach has been used by the authors over a period of twenty years and they have found that it has been stimulating to the student. Right from the beginning of his biological training the student is encouraged to correlate form and function so that if at a later period he decides to become an anatomist or mammalian physiologist, he has a firm foundation on which to base his subsequent knowledge. The book is divided into fourteen chapters. The first chapter defines common terms and also gives a useful introduction to histology. The next twelve chapters give adequate, yet not too detailed accounts of the different systems. The fourteenth chapter gives instructions for the dissection of the cat. This book is attractively laid out and well illustrated, many of the illustrations being in colour. As a text-book for students beginning the study of mammalian zoology, this book can be highly recommended.

The anatomical study of an animal is chiefly a matter of applying a certain practical method of exposition, the student's attention being concentrated on those facts which can be made out by direct observation. This method is educative in the technical sense because it involves accurate discernment of detail, and because, as a means of obtaining first-hand information, it is the foundation of laboratory practice. This being the case, it is a very pertinent question what is the best procedure. So far, as the present book is concerned, it is expected that the study of the type will begin with at least a preliminary survey of the prepared skeleton (Part II). This will be followed by dissection (Part III), in which the order by sections will be found of less importance than that of details in any particular region and and in which portions of the skeleton related to the part under examination may be included. The regional method of approach is indicated rather than the more complete study of single systems, partly for the sake of economy of material and partly in belief that this aids understanding of the topographical and other interrelations between systems, encouraging the building up of a conception of the individual organism as an integrated unit. The general matter of Part I is purely accessory and, though necessarily incomplete in many ways, is designed to afford a comprehensive view of the various factors upon which mammalian structure depends. It will be found that only the first few chapters are introductory in most respects, the remainder being rather explanatory and hence most valuable if used to supplement the directions for dissection as this is carried out. In preparation of the eighth edition of the Practical Anatomy of the Rabbit use has been made of extensive notes recorded in the laboratory during successive years of employment of the previous edition. All relevant questions raised by students or other instructors for which an adequate answer was found not to be readily available in the text have been noted and an attempt has been made to provide answers for them in the revisions. The whole text has been searchingly surveyed with the result that many small changes have been made, parts have been expanded, and a few have been entirely rewritten.
