This classic introduction to zoology isolates a single creature, the crayfish, in order to instruct the reader in the general principles of morphology, physiology, and the behavior of the animal. Huxley hoped that this monograph would show how his description of one animal could provide the “foundation for the whole of biological science.”

About the Author
Thomas Henry Huxley (1825–1895) was English biologist known as “Darwin’s Bulldog” for his strong advocacy of Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution. Huxley may be best known for his famous debate with Archbishop Samuel Wilberforce in June 1860, where he again defended Darwin’s theory.
