The only dictionary of zoology in paperback.
A fine compendium of unquestionable use!
This dictionary is a comprehensive and up-to-date reference work on all aspects of the study of animals. Now
with over 5,000 entries, it is ideal for students and will be
invaluable to amateur naturalists and all those with an interest in the
subject. It is illustrated with clear line drawings, and supported by
useful appendices on the genetic code, endangered animals, and SI units.
Wide coverage including animal behaviour, ecology, physiology, genetics, cytology, evolution, Earth history, zoogeography.
Full taxonomic coverage of arthropods, other invertebrates, fish, reptiles, amphibians, birds, and mammals.
Completely revised to incorporate the discovery of extremophiles - organisms
living in environments formerly considered impossibly hostile - and the
taxonomic reclassification that this has entailed. Featuring entries on genetics, evolutionary studies, and mammalian physiology.
