Expert Answer:

Because the left side of the body is equal and identical to the right side of the body, humans possess bilateral symmetry. Being chordates, humans show the presence of a dorsal notochord during embryonic development which is later replaced by the vertebral column. Hence, the back side or rear of the human body is the dorsal part.
