Biomechanics: Motion, Flow, Stress, and Growth
TLDR
This chapter discusses the role of blood flow in Heart, Lung, Arteries, and Veins in the regulation of strength, Trauma, and Tolerance in the sport of swimming.
Neural Crest and the Origin of Vertebrates: A New Head
Most of the morphological and functional differences between vertebrates and other chordates occur in the head and are derived embryologically from muscularized hypomere, neural crest, and epidermal

Biomechanics: An Approach to Vertebrate Biology
TLDR
This biomechanics an approach to vertebrate biology tends to be the representative book in this website.
Tetrapod Limblessness: Evolution and Functional Corollaries
TLDR
Analysis suggests that elongation for traverse of crevices in a sheltering environment and for the utilization of undulatory locomotion may have provided the initial selective advantage to the system and limb reduction would then have been secondary.
Mastication in the tuatara, Sphenodon punctatus (reptilia: Rhynchocephalia): Structure and activity of the motor system
The masticatory pattern of Sphenodon punctatus, the sole remaining rhynchocephalian, now restricted to islands off the coast of New Zealand, has been analyzed by detailed anatomy, cinematography,
The Genesis of Neural Crest and Epidermal Placodes: A Reinterpretation of Vertebrate Origins
TLDR
The origin of a postotic skull and axial vertebrate appears to be associated with the origin of the gnathostomes, and the development of armor appears to have occurred later in vertebrate evolution.
CHECKLIST AND BIBLIOGRAPHY OF THE AMPHISBAENIA OF THE WORLD
TLDR
A checklist of the Amphisbaenidae is presented and information is offered about the species discussed in the papers, the kind of information presented, and further special notes.
Implications of the late Palaeozoic oxygen pulse for physiology and evolution
The late Palaeozoic was marked by significant changes in atmospheric chemistry and biotic composition. Geochemical models suggest a marked increase and then decline of atmospheric oxygen and
