The author, who is associate professor of zoology at Indiana University, presents this volume as a high school textbook with a view to avoiding the technical discussions that have marked other books of this type, and in an attempt to interest the student by the narrative method rather than to appall him by the technical language of science. He has called on much general knowledge in developing the book, and on special knowledge for criticism of the various chapters. Practically every page is illustrated, many with two or three excellent pictures. For the general reader, this textbook of high school biology may be particularly recommended.
