"Cleal and Thomas have created a book that could be used in the classroom, that fits easily in the undergraduate backpack, and whose chapters can be digested amid FaceBook, chemistry homework, the other things undergradute science students are called to do...It is a solid course, a comprehensive and completely consensus overview. Cleal and Thomas have taken a just-the-facts-ma'am approach that acknowledges some of our contemporary debates, but steers well clear of them. It is a book wisely designed for a long shelf life." Nan Crystal Arens, Hobart & William Smith Colleges, American Paleontologist
"...rich in morphological and anatomical descriptions, well illustrated, and up-to-date." ...Recommended." CHOICE
