Invertebrate Zoology : A Functional Evolutionary Approach Hardback
Ruppert/Barnes' best-selling introduction to the biology of invertebrates is highly regarded for its accuracy and strong research base.
This thorough revision provides a survey by animal group, emphasizing evolutionary origins, adaptive morphology and physiology, while covering anatomical ground plans and basic developmental patterns.
New co-author Richard Fox brings to the revision his expertise as an ecologist, offering a good balance to Ruppert's background as a functional morphologist.
Lavish illustrations and extensive citations make the book extremely valuable as a teaching tool and reference source.
