Compared to terrestrial mammals, the cetacean skin has some unique features. It is not only non-glandular and essentially hairless because of the missing hair follicle complexes, except for sinus hairs in the head region, but shows very specific adaptations to the aquatic environment to overcome problems arising from the saltwater milieu and its low temperatures, or from any biofouling attacks. Integumentry System Image Gallery; The integument of a cetacean is more than just fat! Indeed the integument, commonly called blubber, of cetaceans is a very special organ because it performs multiple functions. Blubber is a fat filled tissue which covers the body of the animal and keeps the animal warm in a cold, thermally conductive environment.

Although their analysis is highly detailed, there is much room for more in-depth research into dolphin anatomy and its relationships to ecology and evolution. There is much more to be discovered in this book than what I mention. Anatomy of Dolphins is a worthwhile publication that brings the understanding of the anatomy of dolphins up-to-date Author: Harrington, Tom. The emphasis in this volume is on the structure and functional design of the integument. The book starts with a brief introduction to some basic principles of physics (mechanics) including Newton’s Three Laws of Motion. These principles are subsequently used to interpret the problems animals encounter in : Hardcover.   Integument samples were collected from 59 known bottlenose dolphins, 25 males and 34 females, from the population resident in Sarasota Bay, Florida. Animals were biopsied in the summers of , , and , during temporary capture-release events as part of a long-term population and health assessment by: The integumentary system consists of the skin, hair, nails, the subcutaneous tissue below the skin, and assorted most obvious function of the integumentary system is the protection that the skin gives to underlying tissues. The skin not only keeps most harmful substances out, but also prevents the loss of fluids. A major function of the subcutaneous tissue is to connect the skin to.

The Vertebrate Integument, Volume 1 reviews the major changes that have occurred in the vertebrate integument from its beginnings to the present day. Critical questions concerning the origin, structure and functional biology of the bony integument are discussed and intrinsically linked to major steps in vertebrate evolution and phylogeny-the. The book’s largest chapter is devoted to birds, given that they make up nearly half of the o species of tetrapods. The flight apparatus of birds is unique in nature and is described in great detail, with innovative research highlighting the complexity of the flight structures, bird flight patterns, and behavior in a variety of species.
