From the Publisher"I can not recomment this book highly enough. It should be in thelibrary of every school and university and I think all biologistswould benefit from having a copy in their personalcollection."
—Peter Bowen-Walker, Journal of Biological Education,2002
"This edition of a very useful text contains new research addingto our knowledge of invertebrates, and many chapters have beenupdated and rewritten. [...] Zoology students will welcome this newedition." (Aslib Book Guide, Dec 2001)
"Essentially, this is a simple text. It aims to bring togetherall invertebrates and describe them in terms of their differences(phyla) and common elements (functions). Although the text needs tobe precise, it is clear and the diagrams are very good. This is anexcellent reference text which should find its way into fieldcentres and school/college libraries." (TEGNews, Dec2001)
"When it comes to the invertebrates the position is much lessclear cut. There are many gaps in our knowledge and so often theevolutionary relationships between the phyla are neglected. It isalso a difficult area of zoology because many of the key organismsare unfamiliar ones, but in this book the subject is dealt withvery clearly. It is a bold step to put it at the beginning, becausethere are many unfamiliar terms and concepts not covered untillater in the book, but I think it works, not least because it givesthe subject the importance it deserves. The book ought to becomethe standard text for invertebrate courses." (New Scientist,Sept. 1993)
"... a good student-orientated introductory text which isattractive, liveley and informative. I am sure it will continue tobe a favourite..." (Journal of Animal Ecology, 1994)
