BONES: the unity of form and function.
by R. McNeill Alexander.
Shows how the characteristics of animal bones relate to how the animal performs, and how similar bone types occur in varied species. Explains the structure, material, and movement of bones as they serve living animals. Examines the composition of bone material,, looks at the joints and muscle attachments that allow for movement--including elaborate mechanisms as fish jaws, rattlesnake fangs, and a lion's retractable claws--and shows how the same bone is shaped wildly differently in a variety of animals. How bones grow as the body grows and their amazing variety of patterns and textures. Color photographs, 223 large-format pages.
