The fact that nearly all living mammals have eye shapes that appear 'nocturnal' by comparison with other amniotes [mammals, reptiles and birds] is a testament to the strong influence that evolutionary history can have on modern anatomy," said Chris Kirk, associate professor of anthropology at The University of Texas at Austin.

This is not to say that comparative immunology has been absent or unimportant; it has always been a center of interest among both immunologists and evolutionary biologists, and comparative studies within amniotes underlie key concepts such as that of immune tolerance (Owen, 1945) and critical functional distinctions such as that between B-and T-lymphocytes (Cooper et al.
