Product Description

From the Publisher

This new edition offers a wealth of new technology products for you and your students. A Visual Resource Library CD-ROM contains key images from our zoology texts and allows you to create dynamic classroom presentations. The new Online Learning Center website offers your students quizzing, study flashcards, and much more!
The 11th edition focuses 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 are be combined and the presentation condensed. Coverage of other topics, including biotechnology and conservation, are expanded to satisfy market changes.
The new edition features integration of the text and supporting On Line Learning Center. The new Online Learning Center website includes features for chapter study (including quizzing) and resources for instructors.
The 11th edition features 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), Bruce Wunder (Colorado State University), Andrew Blaustein (Oregon State University), David Elsenhour (Morehead State University)
General biology topics will be decreased in favor of more depth in the diversity chapters.
This text is considered the market standard. It is comprehensive, accurate, well-written, and has an unsurpassed illustration program.
MetaText Edition Available! There is a Web-based version of this book (an eTextbook) that allows instructors to customize the text by adding comments and web links directly into the text margin. Instructors can also quickly and easily create online syllabi, post announcements, and email students. Students can search, annotate and highlight the text. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

2.0 out of 5 stars A bit of a disappointment 30 Jan 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The corners are severely damaged and there's some marking and writing in it (although not a lot). I was promised "good" quality, but I felt a bit cheated on. I might have gotten it anyway if I had know what was wrong with it, but I would never have said this book was still in "good" condition.

Point of the story: if you want good quality, make sure to get a "very good" copy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dense, but good 4 Nov 2006
By Rose Latham - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I bought this book for my Zoology 1 class, and found the book to be arranged in a logical manner with review material at the end of each chapter. Some of the material and explainations were dense and wordy, but overall I was highly please with the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Zoo Text 30 Sep 2005
By Ryan Heppler - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
A very good book for the average college student in a zoology area. It covers the basic cell biology in the beginning, through meiosis. Then it proceeds up through single, and multi celled creatures, explaining the development, reproduction, adaptation and life cycles. The only downside is the price. between this book and the lab manual, the price will set you back somewhat.

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
