Weibel’s treatment serves as an excellent introduction to mammalian respiratory and exercise physiology. His writing is as concise and linearly organized as the pathway for oxygen that he so eloquently describes… Weibel has done an admirable job of describing both morphology and functional performance.—Robert Dudley, American Scientist

Symmorphosis is (and I use the term advisedly) magisterial: the best description anywhere of a provocative and creatively stimulating research approach to a large number of very important basic questions in animal—more specifically mammalian and human—anatomy, physiology, and evolution. This book is synthetic in the best sense of that word.—Malcolm S. Gordon, University of California, Los Angeles
