The second edition follows the general plan of the first edition, but the material has been brought up to date and expanded. The book is intended for a one semester college course. The authors have developed the material in such a way that the student sees the subject as a whole, rather than losing himself in a maze of details. Animal forms which are of economic or medical importance are emphasized. The subjects of heredity, genetics and evolution, as well as hormones and vitamins, are treated in separate chapters. An appendix groups the material together in tabular form, and the glossary covers fourteen pages.
