This new edition offers a wealth of new technology products for you and your students. A Visual Resource Library CD-ROM contains key images from our zoology texts and allows you to create dynamic classroom presentations. The new Online Learning Center website offers your students quizzing, study flashcards, and much more!
The 11th edition focuses on a "contemporary" revision. A market survey recommended that we reduce the number of chapters dealing with basic biological principles. Therefore, Parts 1 and 2 are be combined and the presentation condensed. Coverage of other topics, including biotechnology and conservation, are expanded to satisfy market changes.
The new edition features integration of the text and supporting On Line Learning Center. The new Online Learning Center website includes features for chapter study (including quizzing) and resources for instructors.
The 11th edition features a host of new "content experts" who have helped the authors to revise specific chapters in the vertebrate section. These experts include: Ron Myers (Weber State University), Helen D'Anson (Washington and Lee University), Ken Hoover (Jacksonville University), Sylvester Allred (Northern Arizona University), Sharyn Marks (Humboldt State University), Bruce Wunder (Colorado State University), Andrew Blaustein (Oregon State University), David Elsenhour (Morehead State University)
General biology topics will be decreased in favor of more depth in the diversity chapters.
This text is considered the market standard. It is comprehensive, accurate, well-written, and has an unsurpassed illustration program.
MetaText Edition Available! There is a Web-based version of this book (an eTextbook) that allows instructors to customize the text by adding comments and web links directly into the text margin.
