about this item

Framing invertebrates within the context of evolutionary biology, this undergraduate textbook introduces the 34 phyla of animal invertebrates, describing the organic systems, body plans, and phylogeny of the organisms. The opening chapters explain how biologists derive evolutionary schemes and classifications, why theories about the phylogeny of animal groups grow and change, and the fundamental anatomical and morphological designs and development strategies employed by metazoans to stay alive and reproduce. The third edition reflects changes to the metazoan phylogeny and updates the ample illustrations. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
