Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Allaby, who also edited the previous edition, has added more definitions of anatomical terms, incorporated recent changes in animal taxonomy, and has added illustrations where the inclusion is in aid of a definition. The result is more than 200 new definitions alongside the entries about theories, vocabulary, and figures in the field that have carried over from the previous work...the usability of the book is self-evident and justifies the terse preface; it is an easy title through which to maneuver, both for readers who know what they are looking for and those who do not." —Library Journal
Library Journal
06/01/2014
A revision of the 2009 third edition, this volume presents zoological terms in a standard A-to-Z format. Allaby, who also edited the previous edition, has added more definitions of anatomical terms, incorporated recent changes in animal taxonomy, and has added illustrations where the inclusion is in aid of a definition. The result is more than 200 new definitions alongside the entries about theories, vocabulary, and figures in the field that have carried over from the previous work. Appendixes include a list of endangered animals (as well as detailed information about classifications of endangerment), the universal genetic code, the geologic timescale, International System (SI) units, and taxonomic classifications. The dictionary is web-linked; linked definitions are indicated at the end of an entry, then users must visit the Oxford University Press website to access. (Only links from the third edition were also available at the time of writing this review.) Cross-references between entries are indicated by the use of an asterisk (terms) or italics (genus ranks) as well as "See Also" directions. Based on the terms that are not cross-referenced, the editor must assume a certain level of zoological knowledge among users of this dictionary. While the writing is technical and somewhat dense for the layperson, the usability of the book is self-evident and justifies the terse preface; it is an easy title through which to maneuver, both for readers who know what they are looking for and those who do not. VERDICT Because of the highly technical nature of the entries, this source will appeal more to students of zoology rather than to armchair naturalists.—Kara Schaff Dean, Walpole P.L., MA
