From the Back Cover:

Invertebrate Zoology is an enormously diverse field, providing a rich array of astonishing organisms worthy of study. INVERTEBRATE ZOOLOGY:A Laboratory Manual, Sixth Edition, is designed to excite your interest in this amazing and wonderful world, but not to satiate that interest. The manual is your invitation to participate in a learner-centered laboratory, an environment that allows you to make first-hand discoveries about invertebrates. The manual is your guide through your studies, asking you to see the organisms in new ways. The manual does not tell you all that there is to see and know, nor does it give you the quick answer. To paraphrase George Perkins Marsh, in this manual it is our aim to stimulate thought and observation, but not satisfy curiosity, and it is no part of our purpose to save the student from the labor of thought. The cover photograph of the jellyfish shown, is symbolic of this pedagogy; while the jellyfish is transparent, the invertebrate must be studied to glean it's secrets.

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Invertebrate zoology is an enormous field. About 96% of all animal species lack backbones, but this assessment may be too conservative. Recent estimates suggest that 10 million insect species in the Amazonian forests have yet to be described. If this prediction is true, the numerical dominance of invertebrate species will be approximately 99%. Nevertheless, humans seem preoccupied with organisms possessing vertebral columns, especially if an animal resembles, in any way, one of those cuddly toys made for young children. Invertebrates, on the other hand, are often viewed with disgust, evoking unwarranted fears and horrific screams of terror when encountered in a disused corner of a basement, in a half-eaten apple, or crawling on one's body. We do not mean to imply that invertebrates do not cause human suffering or seriously damage agricultural products. They do, and it is for these, reasons and because as a group the invertebrates possess such diverse and rich biologies that they are worthy of intensive study.
