Summary

The 9th edition of Zoology continues to offer students an introductory general zoology text that is manageable in size and adaptable to a variety of course formats. It is a principles-oriented text written for the non-majors or the combined course, presented at the freshman and sophomore level.

New to the 9th edition are Learning Outcomes and Learning Outcome Review questions. Learning Outcomes help students identify and focus on the major concepts of each chapter. Learning Outcomes Review questions conclude each major concept to reinforce critical concepts students have just studied and include critical thinking questions that assess their understanding of those concepts.

Introducing Connect Zoology! For the first time in this discipline Connect and Connect Plus allow instructors to provide auto-gradable and interactive assessment material tied to learning outcomes and provide students better integration through live ebook links to animations, videos and audio assets.

"But it is a good book for people who probably aren't going to be actual zookeepers, since most people who are will probably be taking biology cl[censored] and stuff like that"
