Invertebrate zoology
by Robert D. Barnes


Biology of the Invertebrates
by Jan Pechenik

This textbook is the most concise and readable invertebrates book in terms of detail and pedagogy (other texts do not offer boxed readings, a second color, end of chapter questions, or pronunciation guides). All phyla of invertebrates are covered (comprehensive) with an emphasis on unifying characteristics of each group.

Spineless Wonders
by Richard Conniff

We humans have a word for the feeling, whether actual or imagined, that creepy invertebrates are crawling over our skin. That word is formication, and the implied sense of horror and fascination, contends Richard Conniff, is something many of us actually crave. His Spineless Wonders presents an “unabashed wallow in the joy of formication.” Spineless Wonders is an engaging, sophisticated, and humorous mix of natural history and human lore. Through his journalistic assignments, Richard Conniff has been in contact with invertebrates for more than twenty years – tarantulas in the upper Amazon region, dragonflies in Arizona, squid in Florida, and flies on the rim of his beer glass. Discoveries about the extraordinary habits and idiosyncrasies of the moth, the leech, the ant, and the slime eel are opening new frontiers in the exploration of our natural universe. Spineless Wonders takes us directly to these wild and wonderful outposts to observe the hazards of being around invertebrates, the bizarre adaptions that enable them to survive in the world, and also the astonishing work they do – work that enables us to survive.

The Invertebrates
by R. S. K. Barnes, Peter P. Calow, P. J. W. Olive, D. W. Golding, J. I. Spicer

The majority of undergraduate texts in invertebrate zoology (ofwhich there are many) fall into one of two categories. They eitheroffer a systematic treatment of groups of animals phylum by phylum,or adopt a functional approach to the various anatomical andphysiological systems of the better known species. TheInvertebrates is the first and only textbook to integrate bothapproaches and thus meet the modern teaching needs of the subject.

  • This is the only invertebrate textbook to integrate systematicsand functional approaches.
  • The molecular systematics sections have been completely updatedfor the new edition.
  • Strong evolutionary theme which reflects the importance ofmolecular techniques throughout.
  • Distills the essential characteristics of each invertebrategroup and lists diagnostic features to allow comparisons betweenphyla. New phyla have been added for the new edition.
  • Stresses comparisons in physiology, reproduction anddevelopment.
  • Improved layout and illustration quality.
  • Second edition has sold 14000 copies.

Nature of the first edition:
‘Students will like this book. It deserves to succeed.’
