Out of all biology books this would be my most recommended. Also the price to rent this book and buy used is the cheapest I have seen anywhere else! Crazy.

Biology of the Invertebrates: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.


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.
