Summary

This General Zoology Laboratory Manual is intended for students taking their first course in zoology. Provided are exercises and experiences that will help students: (1) understand the general principles that unite animal biology, (2) appreciate the diversity found in the animal kingdom and understand the evolutionary relationships that explain this diversity, (3) become familiar with the structure and function of vertebrate organ systems and appreciate some of the evolutionary changes that took place in the development of those organ systems, and (4) develop problem-solving skills.

Features :

  • The Student Worksheets at the end of each exercise provide a tool for class assignments.
  • The manual is authored by Steve Miller and closely follows the organization and approach of the main text.
  • The laboratory manual can be easily customized per the instructor's needs.
  • Nineteen black-and-white plates of dissected specimens have been added to aid students during their dissections.
  • In recent years, cladistic analysis of evolutionary relationships among animals has become increasingly important in zoology. Exercise 7 is a new exercise that introduces students to principles of animal taxonomy and cladistics using animal models. Other exercises in Unit II apply these principles by having students use class characteristics studied in an exercise to construct a cladogram for the animal phylum studied.
  • Review questions are in the form of "Stop and Ask Yourself" boxes and worksheets, which appear at the end of each exercise and are in a tear-out format so they can be used as graded homework assignments.
  • Boldfaced type is used in the manual to emphasize important terms for each exercise. These include names of structures and concepts students will encounter on exams. A list of key terms is located at the end of each exercise and highlights important new terms and concepts introduced in each exercise.
