Vertebrate anatomy

Vertebrate anatomy

  • Pharyngeal arch
    The pharyngeal arches are structures seen in the development of vertebrates, are recognisable precursors for numerous structures.
  • Premaxilla
    The premaxilla (or praemaxilla) is one of a pair of small cranial bones at the very tip of the upper jaw of many animals, usually, but not always, bearing teeth.
  • Calcaneus
    In humans, the calcaneus (/kælˈkeɪniːəs/; from the Latin calcaneus or calcaneum, meaning heel) or heel bone is a bone of the tarsus of the foot which constitutes the heel.
  • Skull
    The skull is a bony structure that forms the head of the skeleton in most vertebrates.
  • Vertebra
    In the vertebrate spinal column, each vertebra is an irregular bone with a complex structure composed of bone and some hyaline cartilage, the proportions of which vary according to the segment of the backbone and the species of vertebrate.
  • Zygomatic bone
    In the human skull, the zygomatic bone (cheekbone or malar bone) is a paired bone which articulates with the maxilla, the temporal bone, the sphenoid bone and the frontal bone.
  • Phalanx bone
    The phalanges /fəˈlæŋdʒiːz/ (singular: phalanx /ˈfælæŋks/) are digital bones in the hands and feet of most vertebrates.
  • Temple (anatomy)
    Temple indicates the side of the head behind the eyes.
  • Vomeronasal organ
    The vomeronasal organ (VNO), or the Jacobson's organ, is an auxiliary olfactory sense organ that is found in many animals.
  • Mandible
    The mandible, lower jaw or jawbone (from Latin mandibula, "jawbone") is the largest, strongest and lowest bone in the face.
  • Acromion
    In human anatomy, the acromion (from Greek: akros, "highest", ōmos, "shoulder", plural: acromia) is a bony process on the scapula (shoulder blade).
  • Rib cage
    The rib cage is an arrangement of bones in the thorax of all vertebrates except the lamprey and the frog.
  • Endocranium
    The endocranium in comparative anatomy is a part of the skull base in vertebrates and it represents the basal, inner part of the cranium.
  • Squamosal bone
    The squamosal is a bone of the head of higher vertebrates.
  • Rete mirabile
    A rete mirabile (Latin for "wonderful net"; plural retia mirabilia) is a complex of arteries and veins lying very close to each other, found in some vertebrates, mainly warm-blooded ones.
  • Diastema
    A diastema (plural diastemata) is a space or gap between two teeth.
  • Dactyly
    In biology, dactyly is the arrangement of digits (fingers and toes) on the hands, feet, or sometimes wings of a tetrapod animal.
  • Pharyngeal pouch (embryology)
    In the embryonic development of vertebrates, pharyngeal pouches form on the endodermal side between the pharyngeal arches.
