Summary

This long-awaited revision promises to maintain the best features of the "classic" zoology text, while adding eight new expert contributors and a wealth of new technology offerings!

New to This Edition

  • The 11th edition will focus on a "contemporary" revision. A market survey recommended that we reduce the number of chapters dealing with basic biological principles. Therefore, Parts 1 and 2 will be combined and the presentation condensed. Coverage of other topics, including biotechnology and conservation, will be expanded to satisfy market changes.
  • The new edition will feature total integration of the text and supporting website. Key words or phrases throughout the text will be highlighted to indicate a "hotlink" to the website where more information can be found. The new Online Learning Center website will also include features for chapter study (including quizzing) and resources for instructors.
  • The 11th edition will feature a host of new "content experts" who have helped the authors to revise specific chapters in the vertebrate section. These experts include: Ron Myers (Weber State University), Helen D'Anson (Washington and Lee University), Ken Hoover (Jacksonville University), Sylvester Allred (Northern Arizona University), Sharyn Marks (Humboldt State University), and John Houseman (University of Ottawa)
  • General Biology topics will be decreased in favor of more depth in the diversity chapters.


Features

  • This text is considered the market standard. It is comprehensive, accurate, well-written and has an unsurpassed illustration program.
