Variation Variation Outside the Norm: Neomorphs and Atavisms. Brian K. Hall has been interested in and studying skeletal tissues since his undergraduate days in Australia in the s. Those early studies on the development of secondary cartilage in embryonic birds, first published in , have come full circle with the discovery of secondary cartilage in dinosaurs. Bird watching really is flying reptile watching. The information is presented in a clear concise manner with ample figures and extensive references.
As a practicing periodontist with over 30 years of experience, I have found this book both useful and engaging. It now has a prominent position among my desk reference books.
It is one that I will visit on a regular and frequent basis. It covers everything from the elementary to the highly sophisticated and the obscure detail.

Control of vertebrate skeletal mineralization by polyphosphates. But why did vertebrates choose an entirely new mineralization strategy, and what special properties of calcium hydroxyapatite led to its integration into early vertebral skeletons? Whooping Cranes. Exp Cell Res. In addition to delivering bone as an organ, endochondral ossification provided a structural support for vertebrate limb development. Divide, accumulate, differentiate: cell condensation in skeletal development revisited. Back to top.
