This is a major new textbook that is intended to lead students away from purely descriptive zoology courses into an experimental approach that emphasizes asking and answering questions about nature. The book gives a panoramic view of vertebrate life, classification, ecology and behaviour. Section I of the book describes the major groups of vertebrates and their origins. The second section covers classification and its methodology. Section III describes the ecology of vertebrates from two standpoints: how individuals cope with environmental extremes, and principles of population and community ecology as illustrated by experiments carried out in the field. Section IV describes the geographic distribution of vertebrates. The fifth section discusses migration. Vertebrate behaviour is the subject of the final section and covers observations and the theories and experiments they have inspired.

The Museum of Vertebrate Zoology (MVZ), located on the campus of the University of California, Berkeley, is a leading center of herpetological research in the United States. This monograph offers 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, and lists all type specimens of recent amphibians and nonavian reptiles in the collection. Although the MVZ has existed since 1908, until 1945 there was no formal curator for the collection of amphibians and nonavian reptiles. Since that time Robert C. Stebbins, David B. Wake, Harry W. Greene, Javier A. Rodríguez-Robles (in an interim capacity), and Craig Moritz have served in that position. The herpetological collection of the MVZ was begun on March 13, 1909, with a collection of approximately 430 specimens from southern California and as of December 31, 2001, contained 232,254 specimens. Taxonomically, the collection is strongest in salamanders, accounting for 99,176 specimens, followed by "lizards" (squamate reptiles other than snakes and amphisbaenians, 63,439), frogs (40,563), snakes (24,937), turtles (2,643), caecilians (979), amphisbaenians (451), crocodilians (63), and tuataras (3). Whereas the collection's emphasis historically has been on the western United States and on California in particular, representatives of taxa from many other parts of the world are present. The 1,765 type specimens in the MVZ comprise 120 holotypes, three neotypes, three syntypes, and 1,639 paratopotypes and paratypes; 83 of the holotypes were originally described as full species. Of the 196 amphibian and nonavian reptilian taxa represented by type material, most were collected in México (63) and California (USA, 54). The Appendix of the monograph presents a list of curators, graduate and undergraduate students, postdoctoral fellows, research associates, research assistants, curatorial associates, curatorial assistants, and visiting faculty who have conducted research on the biology of amphibians and reptiles while in residence in the Museum of Vertebrate Zoology as of December 31, 2001.

Excerpt from The Vertebrate Zoology of Sind: A Systematic Account, With Descriptions of All the Known Species of Mammals, Birds, and Reptiles Inhabiting the Province Finally I have to crave the indulgence of those authors - alread y referred to in the Preface - end others, for the privilege I have taken of so largely adding from their valuable works to the existingknowledge of the fauna of Sind. My sole Object in publishing this work is, as I have already said, to place on record what is already known of the fauna of Sind, also to occasion a greater interest in the rich mines of the treasures of science to be found in the Province, and thus bring to the surface the many valuable gems it contains.

Excerpt from A Course in Vertebrate Zoology: A Guide to the Dissection and Comparative Study of Vertebrate Animals The plan of this course is similar to that of the Invertebrate Zoology published by the author three years ago. Its principal aim is to furnish a guide to the dissection of types of the most important groups of vertebrates. The directions are practical in character, and are designed to be in sufficient detail to enable the student to carry on his work intelligently and profitably and with the least possible waste of time and material. Vertebrates are large animals with complex systems of organs, and it is impossible for a young student to dissect them in the best manner unless he receives full instructions at every important step. To give such instructions is the main purpose of this book. The course seeks also to keep the morphological relations of the various organs and systems of organs constantly before the mind and to make the study a comparative one. Each of the dissections is complete in itself and is not depend ent upon any of the others. The teacher may thus assign to his class such of the dissections as he wishes, and in the order he wishes. The directions do not contain exhaustive descriptions of the animals dissected, the completeness of the description in each case being made dependent upon the pedagogical ends aimed at, and upon the time ordinarily at the disposal of the student. The organs which have been treated in the least detail are the muscles, in most cases only the superficial ones being described, and they not minutely. A teacher will find it an easy matter, however, to extend the study of the muscles if he wishes. The particular order in which the various systems of organs of each animal are studied is the one which experience has shown will accomplish the desired result with the greatest economy of time and material.
