About this book

Intended for first and second year undergraduates, this book is about the major groups of animals, their structure, physiology and ways of life. Each chapter deals with a taxonomic group of animals, usually a phylum or class, and in each, brief examples are given without being weighed down with excessive morphological and taxonomic information.
