Hyman's Comparative Vertebrate Anatomy

Science Nonfiction In this second enlarged and expanded edition the author has attempted not only to give the laboratory directions for the dissection of the various systems, but also presented in connection with each system a very brief, generalized, and simplified account of the present revision is based wholly on the study of original literature and advanced treatises. In place of the impression of a static subject wherein everything has been worked out, gained from the usual textbooks, it aims to give the student a picture of a vast field full of controversial issues and unsolved problems, depending for their solution on future painstaking embryological and anatomical researches. This book tries to teach comparative vertebrate anatomy by means of real specimens, and it is to be hoped that ample material will be available during the laboratory study. This work is indispensable to the student of comparative vertebrate anatomy and must serve as a guide in beginning the study of any system. It is a bottomless source of information on any facts one might want to know, although less satisfactory, perhaps, in giving connected account of the evolution of the system.


Comparative anatomy

History[ edit ] Skeletons of humans and birds compared by Pierre Belon , The first specifically anatomical investigation separate from a surgical or medical procedure is associated by early commentators with Alcmaeon of Croton. His research led to modern comparative anatomy. A young anatomist of Flemish descent made famous by a penchant for amazing charts, he was systematically investigating and correcting the anatomical knowledge of the Greek physician Galen. Instead, they were based on animals such as apes , monkeys , and oxen. Up until that point, Galen and his teachings had been the authority on human anatomy. As Vesalius began to uncover these mistakes, other physicians of the time began to trust their own observations more than those of Galen.


Hyman's Comparative Vertebrate Anatomy (Book)

Hyman attended public schools in Fort Dodge. At home she was required to do much of the housework. She also collected butterflies and moths and later wrote, "I believe my interest in nature is primarily aesthetic. Uncertain of her future, she began work in a local factory, pasting labels on cereal boxes. Her high school teacher of English and German persuaded her to attend the University of Chicago , which she entered in on a one-year scholarship. She continued at the university with further scholarships and nominal jobs.
