"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.

From the Publisher:

Covers the "heart" of a zoology course: a complete discussion of animals (protozoa to mammals). These chapters are preceded by an introduction to classification, evolution and animal architecture.
Author recognition- Professors and students can depend on accurate, experience writing, knowing the tradition of quality work by these authors.
Length and Level
Length: Half the size of standard Zoology texts.
Level: Appropriate for intermediate level courses needing an abbreviated version of the longer Hickman titles.
Classification: Taxonomy is presented with both the Linnaean system and with cladistics via cladograms. Students and professors both benefit by having both systems presented in the text. Students are better prepared by studying both. The material on cladistics can be easily skipped if so desired by the instructor.
Emphasis on animal diversity with an introduction to evolution and classification.
This text contains modern, thoroughly researched coverage of the phyla of animals. It emphasizes the unifying architectural and functional themes of each group.
Origin of Life and Geologic Time Table (which appears in back of book) now appears in full color.
Descriptions of appropriate web links appear at the end of every chapter. To avoid future "dead links" these will guide the student to a McGraw-Hill website where URLs can be updated as needed.
VALUE- the most concise and least expensive book in the market.
