The 8th edition of Zoology continues to offer students an introductory general zoology text that is manageable in size and adaptable to a variety of course formats. It is a principles-oriented text written for the non-majors or the combined course, presented at the freshman and sophomore level.
Zoology is organized into three parts. Part One covers the common life processes, including cell and tissue structure and function, the genetic basis of evolution, and the evolutionary and ecological principles that unify all life. Part Two is the survey of protists and animals, emphasizing evolutionary and ecological relationships, aspects of animal organization that unite major animal phyla, and animal adaptations. Part Three covers animal form and function using a comparative approach. This approach includes descriptions and full-color artwork that depict evolutionary changes in the structure and function of selected organ systems.
Part One: Biological Principles1. Zoology: An Evolutionary and Ecological Perspective

I am young and not old enough to be in college, but I loved zoology and wanted to get a headstart in it. I am very young, 13 years old. I only didn't understand the second chapter, but i am sure i will understand it when i am older. I love animals and want to be a zoologist, and this book was perfect for me. I am probably the first teenager to ever read this book, it is very scientific. Before I knew almost nothing about zoology. It is not too confusing, but requires a lot of thinking and concentration. Great college book, and my guess is that they will have this book in college, except maybe by then there would be a higher edition. Recommended for students who want to learn zoology and scholars.
Overall, if you love animals and find them fascinating, and are looking for a job in zoology in your future, zoology is a great way to go. It is one of the widest fields of science and gives you many options. In zoology you specialize in one part of it, leaving animal-lovers with many options.
