New Features

Mcgraw-Hill Connect Zoology provides online presentation, assignment, and assessment solutions. Integrated with McGraw-Hill LearnSmart and a media-rich version of the book this offering is an exciting first in the field of Zoology education.

Each edition of this text brings new knowledge of phylogenetic relationships among animals and their corresponding taxonomy. Relationships among the animal phyla remain a particularly challanging phylogenetic problem, with new data often rejecting formerly favored relationships at the phylum level. This edition of the text has added several new groups to the cladogram inside the front cover and reordered some chapters accordingly.

Key Features

Chapter notes, which appear throughout the book, augment the text material and offer interesting sidelights without interrupting the narrative. Many new notes were prepared for this edition and several existing notes were revised.

To assist students in chapter review, each chapter ends with a concise summary, a list of review questions, and annotated selected references. The review questions enable a student to self-test retention and understanding of the more important chapter material.

To help students in vocabulary development, key words are boldfaced and derivations of technical and zoological terms are provided, along with generic names of animals where they first appear in the text. An extensive glossery provides pronounciation, derivation,, and definition of each term. Many new terms were added to the glossery or rewritten for this edition.
