Rating
Long recognized as the most readable textbook on vertebrate biology, this comprehensive volume covers subjects ranging from the biology of the smallest shrew to the migration of the largest whales. Thoroughly updated with the latest research, this new edition discusses taxa and topics such as: systematics and evolution; zoogeography, ecology, morphology, and reproduction; early chordates; fish, amphibians, reptiles (inclusive of birds), and mammals; population dynamics; movement and migration; behavior; study methods; extinction processes; and, conservation and management. Complete with appendixes and glossary, "Vertebrate Biology" is the ideal text for courses in zoology, vertebrate biology, vertebrate natural history, and general biology. Donald W. Linzey carefully builds theme upon theme, concept upon concept, as he walks students through a plethora of topics on the vertebrate life form. Arranged logically to follow the typical course format, "Vertebrate Biology" leaves students with a full understanding of the unique structure, function, and living patterns of the subphylum that includes our own species.
