Book Review

Abstract

Excerpt: This book would delight the traditional zoologist as its emphasis is on systematics and evolution. primarily based on morphology. By the author's own admission he neglects areas concerning histology, embryology, physiology and genetics, while giving little time to areas he terms animal biology--symbiosis, parthenogenesis, behavior and parasitism. Dr. Savory feels the aforementioned areas warrant volumes of their own. Yet this book is titled Introduction to Zoology. Perhaps a better title would be Introduction to Zoology, Part I. Systematics and Evolution.
