Functional Morphology of the Invertebrate Skeleton
Functional morphology is the relationship between form and function of an organism, seen as an adaptive context. Attention is paid to all behavioural, historic-phylogenetic and environmental factors that affect form, function and evolution. This volume considers the topic and parallels the established Belhaven palaeontological studies. It concentrates on the taxonomic groups that are of interest to palaeontologists and also includes substantial material on recent invertebrates as well as fossils.
