Comparative Anatomy is to make a comparative study of the anatomy of an organ in different groups of vertebrates and try to derive the evolutionary significance from it, and to understand as to why an organ evolved the way it is present now. Genetic and environmental forces are responsible for the development of an organ, on which then natural selection operates to determine its survival or. Palaeontologist Richard Owen 1804-92 was superintendent of natural history in the British Museum and founder of the Natural History Museum.

Vertebrate groups are organized phylogenetically, and their systems discussed within such a context. Morphology is foremost, but the author has developed and integrated an understanding of function and evolution into the discussion of anatomy of the various systems. Our collections of recent vertebrates provide an unusually comprehensive coverage of all living groups and are therefore a powerful resource for broad comparative research and teaching. The majority of the specimens are osteological, including more than 130 mounted mammalian skeletons on public display.
