A complete revision of the award-winning Guide to the Zoological Literature: The Animal Kingdom (1994), this new title includes extensive, up-to-date coverage of: General Reference Sources Invertebrates Arthropods (including Spiders, Crustaceans, and Insects) Vertebrates Fishes Amphibians and Reptiles Birds Mammals In addition, the work features a detailed introduction by the author, as well as thorough subject, title, and author indexes. Students and researchers can now quickly and easily pinpoint works in their field of study.
