The Vertebrate Vascular System

Christine Janis, a professor in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology here at Brown, designed these wonderful animations of vascular systems in vertebrates. Taken together, they provide a clear picture of the evolution of the vascular system, and place our mammalian vascular system in a much broader evolutionary context.
These animations were created in collaboration with Giovanna Roz Gastaldi and Ed Casey of Brown’s Instructional Technology Group, along with student technology assistants.
