Most widely held works by Karel F Liem
Functional anatomy of the vertebrates : an evolutionary perspective by Warren F Walker( Book )

43 editions published between 1979 and 2007 in English and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Introducing students to the groups of vertebrates, this book explores the anatomical evolution of vertebrates within the context of the functional interrelationship of organs and the changing environments to which vertebrates have adapted

Comparative functional anatomy of the Nandidae (Pisces: Teleostei) by Karel F Liem( Book )

The viperid snake Azemiops: its comparative cephalic anatomy and phylogenetic position in relation to Viperinae and Crotalinae by Karel F Liem( Book )

Ecomorphology of fishes by Joseph J Luczkovich( )

3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ecomorphology is the comparative study of the influence of morphology on ecological relationships and the evolutionary impact of ecological factors on morphology in different life intervals, populations, species, communities, and evolutionary lineages. The book reviews early attempts at qualitative descriptions of ecomorphological patterns in fishes, especially those of the Russian school. More recent, quantitative studies are emphasised, including multivariate approaches to ecomorphological analysis, the selection of functionally important ecological and morphological variables to analyze, an experimental approach using performance tests to examine specific hypotheses derived from functional morphology, and the evolutionary interpretations of ecomorphological patterns. Six major areas of fish biology are focused on: feeding, sensory systems, locomotion, respiration, reproduction, and phylogenetic relationships. The 18 papers in the volume document: (1) how the morphology of bony fishes constrains ecological patterns and the use of resources; (2) whether ecological constraints can narrow the niche beyond the limits imposed by morphology (fundamental vs. realized niche); (3) how communities of fishes are organized with respect to ecomorphological patterns; and (4) the degree to which evolutionary pressures have produced convergent or divergent morphologies in fishes. A concluding paper summarizes ecomorphological research in fishes and points out taxa that are underrepresented or are especially promising for future research
Functional vertebrate morphology( )

7 editions published between 1985 and 2014 in English and German and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A carefully edited collection of 18 papers authored by 21 accomplished researchers, including contributions from the four editors. Emphasis throughout is on biomechanical principles and functional adaptations of anatomical architecture during specified activities. Various locomotory movements, feeding, mastication, and swallowing, vision, and ventilation are the major activities stressed. Fins, tetrapod limbs, eyes, trunk features, muscalature, skull and jaws, Weberian ossicles, the octavolateralis system, and the brain are among the many structural subjects detailed. Over 200 drawings and photographs amply illustrate the text. Included is a list of contributors, an index, and a reference section containing over 1,100 titles arranged according to the 18 units of the book. Intended as a textbook and a reference source for advanced undergraduates and graduate students, Hildebrand's work is similar in approach to Carl Gans's Biomechanics (CH, Dec '74). The editors have succeeded in making the book interesting and readable, avoiding unnecessary technical jargon. Highly recommended for upper-division college and university science libraries.-E.D.
