"Animals Without Backbones" has been considered a classic among biology textbooks since it was first published to great acclaim in 1938. It was the first biology text book ever reviewed by "Time" and was also featured with illustrations in "Life." Harvard, Stanford, the University of Chicago, and more than eighty other colleges and univerisities adopted it for use in courses. Since then, its clear explanations and ample illustrations have continues to intoduce hundreds of thousands of students and general readers around the world to jellyfishes, corals, flatworms, squids, starfishes, spiders, grasshoppers, and the other invertebrates that make up ninety-seven percent of the animal kingdom.
Ralph Buchsbaum was professor emeritus of biology at the University of Pittsburgh. Mildred Buchsbaum has collaborated on previous editions of "Animals Without Backbones." John Pearse, a professor of biology at the University of California, Santa Cruz, and Vicki Pearse, a research associate in biology at the University of California, Santa Cruz, are coeditors with A. C. Giese of the multivolume Reproduction of Marine Invertebrates and have published many papers in invertebrate zoology.
