Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A colorful introductory textbook, framed within an evolutionary perspective, that stresses the basic principles and assumptions which provide a basis for understanding the animal kingdom and its progenitors, the animal-like Protista. A significant change in this edition is the inclusion of a cladistic perspective in the survey chapters of Part Three, The Diversity of Animal Life. Included with this edition is a free Student Study Art Notebook. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
