Description

"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.
