The Science of zoology has a language of its own with hundreds of terms that are rarely used by non-experts. The present publication is a comprehensive and up-to-date reference work on all aspects of the study of animals.
Containing over 5, 000 entries on everything from animal behaviour, ecology, and physiology to genetics, cytology, and evolution, this encyclopaedic dictionary offers full taxonomic coverage of arthropods, fish, reptiles, amphibians, birds, and mammals. It is illustrated with clear line drawings, and supported by useful appendices on the genetic code, endangered animals, and SI units.
This work is ideal for students and will be invaluable to scientists, researchers and all those with an interest in zoology.
