Unformatted text preview: Comparative Vertebrate Anatomy Introduction What is Comparative Anatomy? Looking at broad evolutionary patterns by comparing anatomy of different species What is Comparative Anatomy? Looking at broad evolutionary patterns by comparing anatomy of different species Developing hypotheses about the evolution of organisms and organ systems Form and Function are Linked Functional anatomy examines how structures in an organism work Form and Function are Linked Functional anatomy examines how structures in an organism work Describes form and function Form and Function are Linked Functional anatomy examines how structures in an organism work Describes form and function How and why did the structure/function evolve? Form and Function are Linked What is a structure? Cells Tissues Organs Organ systems How and Why Did Certain Structures Evolve? Phylogenetic analysis: What are the features? How are they similar to/different from other organisms? When did features arise? How does form and function change throughout the life of an individual organism? Patterns/structures in adult organisms depend on embryo development Ontogeny = pattern of development in an organism Systems Approach to Comparative and Functional Anatomy Compares anatomical structures and functions between different organisms Mountain Lion vs. African Lion Skull http://www.nhm.ac.uk/about-us/news/2005/oct/images/lion-skull-side-370_6963_1.jpg http://www.adirondackreflections.com/images/mtnlionsk1bg.jpg Python vs. Puff Adder http://www.boneroom.com/casts/images_bc/herp_python.jpg www.seanthomas.net/oldsite/skull1.jpg Systems Approach to Comparative and Functional Anatomy Compares anatomical structures and functions between different organisms Highlights how different vertebrates have solved similar problems Modern Dolphin vs. Fossil Ichthyosaur (Reptile) http://www.hse.k12.in.us/staff/cvanalstine/images/bottle%20nosed%20dolphin %20skull.jpg http://palaeo.gly.bris.ac.uk/palaeofiles/lagerstatten/posidonia/icht.jpg Systems Approach to Comparative and Functional Anatomy Compares anatomical structures and functions between different organisms Highlights how different vertebrates have solved similar problems Highlights how different vertebrates have specialized Aye-Aye http://images.google.com/imgres? imgurl=http://lemur.duke.edu/animals/ayeaye/more.jpg&imgrefurl=http://lemur.duke.edu/animals/ayeaye/more.php&h=538&w=792&sz= 60&hl=en&start=38&tbnid=XeNp99y9is5hZM:&tbnh=97&tbnw=143&prev=/images%3Fq%3DDaubentonia%2Bmadagascariensis %26start%3D20%26gbv%3D2%26ndsp%3D20%26svnum%3D10%26hl%3Den%26sa%3DN http://www.durrell.ru/pict/aiai1.jpg http://macro.dokkyomed.ac.jp/mammal/images/living/medium/29-02m.jpg Aye-Aye Hand http://www.boneclones.com/images/KO-163-lg.jpghttp://www....
