About this book

A one-volume source for terms referring to mammals, birds, fishes, reptiles, amphibians, and invertebrates. It has two major divisions:

*A dictionary of 13,000 non-technical entry words used by English-speaking people around the world. It is extensively cross-referenced between preferred common names and locally accepted ones.

*Appendices of two basic types: the first group deals with domesticated animals individually, telling of their ancestral roots, breeds, including a glossary of terms applying to each animal. The second group covers a wide range of subjects from terms used in blood sports to animals important in mythology, symbolism, and heraldry. There are terms used in the fur trade as well as in butchering and carving. There are words for sounds made by animals, for their tails, and for their excreta-secreta. There are flip-flop lists of group names, derivative words, feeding terms, and niches.
