附註 "The Teeth of Non-Mammalian Vertebrates is the first comprehensive publication devoted to the teeth and dentitions of living fishes, amphibians and reptiles. The book presents a comprehensive survey of the amazing variety of tooth forms among non-mammalian vertebrates, based on descriptions of approximately 400 species belonging to about 160 families. The text is lavishly illustrated with more than 600 high-quality color and monochrome photographs of specimens gathered from top museum collections and researchers from around the world, supplemented by radiographs, scanning electron micrographs, and micro-CT images. This stimulating work discusses the functional morphology of feeding, the attachment of teeth, and the relationship of tooth form to function, with each chapter accompanied by a comprehensive, up-to-date reference list. Following the descriptions of the teeth and dentitions in each class, four chapters review current topics with considerable research activity: tooth development; tooth replacement; and the structure, formation, and evolution of the dental hard tissues. This timely book, authored by internationally recognized teachers and researchers in the field, also reflects the resurgence of interest in the dentitions of non-mammalian vertebrates as experimental systems to help understand genetic changes in the evolution of teeth and jaws. Key features: provides detailed coverage of the dentition of all living groups of non-mammalian vertebrates; includes clear, concise, and up-to-date reviews of tooth structure, attachment, development, and replacement, together with helpful reading lists; offers guidance on tooth morphology for classification and evolution of vertebrates."-- Page 4 of cover
