Synopsis:

This book presents a comprehensive overview of invertebrate organismal zoology (IZ), defining invertebrates as any multicellular organism without a backbone (excluding plants and Fungi). While there are many IZ textbooks on the market, few combine the classical anatomical information with the newer genome level DNA sequence data and evo-devo data for teaching purposes. This book documents the latest research in these areas and combines it with classical information, giving students a unique opportunity to learn the biology of these organisms.

 

Key selling features:

  • Combines classical morphological approaches and newer evo-devo and next generation sequencing approaches to address invertebrate zoology (first book to do so)
  • Presents information along taxonomic lines in accord with the latest understanding of invertebrate phylogeny
  • Includes the latest data matrices on a website available for student use in learning newer analytical techniques
  • Contains chapter-ending questions that reinforce the study of invertebrate evolution
  • Provides background in basic systematic analysis, useful within any study of biodiversity
