Paperback. $ Description. The majority of undergraduate texts in invertebrate zoology (of which there are many) fall into one of two categories. They either offer a systematic treatment of groups of animals phylum by phylum, or adopt a functional approach to the various anatomical and physiological systems of the better known species.

The Invertebrates is the first and only.

All phyla of invertebrates are covered (comprehensive) with an emphasis on unifying characteristics of each group. Jan Pechenik's Biology of the Invertebrates (BoI) is a significant, succinct contribution to invertebrate biology.

I'll make the case for this textbook by first introducing and outlining two different approaches to teaching invertebrate biology, and then I'll outline BoI's positives. We used a more recent American textbook (Pough et al.'s Vertebrate Life) for our vertebrate evolution course (taught by Prof.

Kenneth Kermack and Mrs. Frances Mussett) but Young's classic was a recommended reference and we were familiar with the book. In spite of the passage of time Young's Life of Vertebrates will remain a classic and it is so. Book: Introductory Biology (CK) Characteristics of Invertebrates.

About this book. In the 12 years since publication of Invertebrates, Second Edition, fundamental shifts have occurred in our understanding of the origins and evolutionary relationships among protists and changes are largely due to the explosion of molecular phylogenetics and evo-devo research, emergence of the new field of animal genomics, major fossil discoveries in China.

"Invertebrates" 2nd edition presents a modern survey of the 34 animal phyla (plus the Protista) and serves as both a college course text and a reference on invertebrate biology.

It is organized around the themes of bauplans (body plans) and evolution (phylogenetics). Detailed classifications, phylogenetic trees, and references for all phyla are provided.5/5(4).

Invertebrate animals are those without a cranium and defined vertebral column or spine. In addition to lacking a spine, most invertebrates also lack an endoskeleton. A large number of invertebrates are aquatic animals, and scientific research suggests that many of the world’s species are aquatic invertebrates that have not yet been documented.

Life. Born in Des Moines, Iowa, she was the daughter of Joseph Hyman and Sabina ('Bena') Neumann. Hyman's father, a Polish/Russian, adopted the surname when he immigrated to the United States as a youth. He successively owned clothing stores in Des Moines, in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and in Fort Dodge, Iowa, but the family's resources were limited.

Hyman attended public schools in Fort Do.
