This best-selling, comprehensive text is suitable for one- or two-semester courses. Integrated Principles of Zoology is considered the standard by which other texts are measured. It features high quality illustrations and photos, engaging narrative, traditional organization, and comprehensive coverage.

New Features

--Three new contributors (Susan Keen, UC-Davis; Robert Toonen, Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology; and Matthew Douglas, Grand Rapids Community College) helped revised all the invertebrate chapters, bringing authoritative insights from their areas of zoological interest and research.

--In general, the authors revised all chapters to streamline the writing style, make the text current while eliminating excessive detail, and place more emphasis on experimentation and comparative studies in zoology.

--Although the order of chapters is unchanged from the 12th edition, the authors extensively reorganized and reworked the content of several chapters.

--The art program was reworked to include several new and revised figures and photos, allowing students to better visualize the concepts at hand.

--Chapter 6: A new example (bill-size polymorphism in an African finch) has been inserted and used to challenge Darwin's theory of gradualism, and clarified definitions of a populational bottleneck and a founder effect.

--Chapter 9: Material in this chapter has been reordered to illustrate the body plans of animals. We added new sections to explain how various developmental sequences produce different adult structures.

--Chapter 11: This chapter has been completely reorganized and expanded to include new taxonomic relationships elucidated through molecular studies.

--Chapter 31: This chapter was extensively rewritten to improve accuracy and clarity and integrate the art program with text. Much of the art was revised for this edition. A new chapter box describes coronary artery disease.

--Chapter 37: We extensively revised the treatment of marine environments, expanding the descriptions of benthic communities, rocky intertidal and subtidal zones, coral reefs, soft sediment zones, hydrothermal vents, and the pelagic realm. These new sections are enhanced with representative photographs and references. We also expanded the section on zoogeography to emphasize the role of phylogenetic systematics in historical biogeography.
