Chordates are animals possessing a notochord, a hollow dorsal nerve cord, pharyngeal slits, an endostyle, and a post-anal tail for at least some period of their life cycles. Chordates went on to become one of the most successful of all animal phyla, colonizing the land and sea and becoming the fourth most diverse phylum, after arthropods, nematodes, and mollusks, with over 100,000 species. This book deals with chordate zoology.
