Written for the one-term, undergraduate course, An Introduction to Zoology: Investigating the Animal World provides students with an accessible and engaging look at the fundamentals of zoology. This student-friendly text is driven by the underlying concepts of zoology rather than the memorization of terminology from the field. The authors take care to write in a style students can relate to as to not overwhelm them with encyclopedic passages. They go on to include Connects sections at the end of each chapter which discuss how the animals in the chapter connect to students from and economic, ecologic, medical, and cultural perspective, to emphasize how the animal world and the human realm are intimately intertwined. End-of-chapter questions are included for each chapter however, these questions are anything but the standard review questions one finds at chapter end in most science textbooks. In this book students will find questions at the end of each chapter that challenge their ability to think critically and creatively and aid the development of their science process skills (communication, formulating hypotheses, experimental design and so on).
