    This text is meant to give you a solid undergraduate introduction to the diversity of invertebrates from a zoological perspective with a bit of ecology, developmental biology, and classification. After a swift primer on some terms/concepts critical to investigating invertebrate zoology, this book jumps into it with our own group, Phylum Chordata. This textbook is the most concise and readable invertebrates book in terms of detail and pedagogy (other texts do not offer boxed readings, a second color, end of chapter questions, or pronunciation guides). All phyla of invertebrates are covered (comprehensive) with an emphasis on unifying characteristics of each group.

    Animals Without Backbones has been considered a classic among biology textbooks since it was first published to great acclaim in It was the first biology textbook ever reviewed by Time and was also featured with illustrations in d, Stanford, the University of Chicago, and more than eighty other colleges and universities adopted it for use in courses/5(24).   Buy a cheap copy of Invertebrate Zoology book by Robert D.

    The Third Edition of Ecology and Classification of North American Freshwater Invertebrates continues the tradition of in-depth coverage of the biology, ecology, phylogeny, and identification of freshwater invertebrates from the USA and Canada. This edition is in color for the first time and includes greatly expanded classification of many phyla. Introduction to the Vertebrates. Although not the most numerous group of animals in either number of individuals or in number of taxa, the vertebrates are an endlessly fascinating group of animals. Vertebrates are interesting partly because we are intimately familiar .

Introduction to Invertebrates Phyla: The invertebrates include those which are without backbone as opposed to vertebrates in which a series of vertebrae constitute a backbone, but this division of the animal kingdom into invertebrates and vertebrates is largely a matter of convenience.

A brief look at any magazine pertaining to our natural world, such as  National Geographic, would show a rich variety of vertebrates, especially mammals and birds.

To most people, these are the animals that attract our attention. About this book. In the 12 years since publication of Invertebrates, Second Edition, fundamental shifts have occurred in our understanding of the origins and evolutionary relationships among protists and changes are largely due to the explosion of molecular phylogenetics and evo-devo research, emergence of the new field of animal genomics, major fossil discoveries in China.

ADVERTISEMENTS: Introduction to Invertebrates Phyla: The invertebrates include those which are without backbone as opposed to vertebrates in which a series of vertebrae constitute a backbone, but this division of the animal kingdom into invertebrates and vertebrates is largely a matter of convenience.

City dwellers might find birds or squirrels in a park or keep domesticated dogs, cats, and goldfish as home pets. Humans living in rural areas might raise pigs or chickens, or encounter coyotes or snakes.

I strongly recommend this book to all undergraduates who are interested in biology: it provides a lucid, yet comprehensive, introduction to a significant proportion of the diversity of life on Earth.'
