The Atlas of Comparative Anatomy began as a class project at SUNY Oneonta in 2017 because of the lack of a comprehensive freely-accessible photographic atlas. The majority of entries in this atlas were produced by students including dissection, photography, and identification. It is a work in progress, but we hope that students of anatomy find this a useful tool for studying anatomy outside of the lab.
The authors are interested in learning who adopts this tool for their course. If you do, please email Dr. Kristen Roosa at Kristen.Roosa@oneonta.edu.

Based on over 20 years of teaching experience in animal nutrition, this study guide will enhance learning basic food animal nutritional principles.
In this introductory text, six fundamental nutrients, their structure, digestion, and metabolism are covered. A brief introduction to bioenergetics, feed additives, nutrient analysis, digestive organs and processes in monogastric and ruminant animals, and methods for assessing nutrient utilization are also included.
Each chapter is illustrated with a new terms box, key points, and review questions.
This study guide is an essential learning tool for undergraduate students majoring in animal sciences, veterinary medicine, or other related disciplines.

Textbook Learning Objectives
1. Use the Association of Shelter Veterinarians (ASV) Guidelines for Standards of Care in Animal Shelters as a guide for the practice of veterinary medicine in a shelter environment. 2. Develop population management practices that optimize animal wellbeing and best outcomes for homeless and sheltered animals. 3. Employ evidence-based medicine and best practices to develop cost-effective preventive healthcare, biosecurity, and public health measures. 4. Prioritize situational urgency and respond appropriately to common health threats, animal welfare issues, and animal abuse. 5. Analyze recent trends, issues, and epidemiology related to animal homelessness, and identify rational and culturally competent strategies to address these. 6. Apply key concepts crucial to the practice of Shelter Medicine, including the Five Freedoms, Fear Free principles, capacity for care, high quality high volume spay-neuter, and One Health. 7. Monitor employment opportunities for veterinarians in Shelter Medicine and analyze the training and experience needed for success in such positions. 8. Integrate factors such as time management, team leadership, workplace safety, and personal wellness associated with career satisfaction of the entire veterinary team. 9. Adapt written and oral communication and leadership styles in interactions with shelter personnel and professional peers.

Introduction to diversity of structure and function in animals at the tissue and organ system level.
This book is an introduction to the diversity of structure and function in animals at the tissue and organ system level. The focus of this book is on principles and mechanisms that sustain life and maintain homeostasis, including water balance, gas exchange, acquisition and transport of oxygen and nutrients, temperature regulation, electrical and chemical signal transmission, sensory processing, and locomotion. The content in this open textbook was adapted from other open textbooks (cc by 4.0) resources or created/written by Sanja Hinic-Frlog and collaborators. Collaborators include: Jessica Hanley, Simone Laughton, and invited undergraduate and graduate students at the University of Toronto Mississauga.

We designed this book to offer a comprehensive overview of the monitoring process, from start to finish. Although there are books that deal with sampling design and the quantitative analysis of population data, there are few that provide practical advice covering the entire evolution of a monitoring plan from incorporating stakeholder input to data collection to data management and analysis to reporting. This book strives to present an overview of this process. We also acknowledge that any such effort tends to reflect the interests and expertise of the authors, and as such, there is a distinct emphasis on monitoring vertebrate populations and upland habitats. Although many of our examples tend to focus on bird populations and forested habitats, we have made an attempt to cover other taxa and habitat types as well, and many of the recommendations and suggestions that we present are applicable to a diversity of monitoring programs.
This book was written to fill a practical need and also to embrace a set of values that we hold dear. We wanted a book that could be used in a classroom because we feel that students in natural resources programs need to know how to design a monitoring program when they enter the workforce. We also realize that many former students now in the workforce did not have that training and may find this book of value to them.
