Textbook of zoology

The introduction of chapters on Animal Anomalies, Animal Regeneration, Biological Effects of Radiation, Marine Zoology, and Wildlife Conservation is a slight departure from the usual textbook outline, but each of these seems to the author to have enough of  special value and current interest to warrant presentation. The chapters on Regulatory Glands, Animal Distribution, The Animal and Its Environment, Animal Parasitism, Comparative Emhrijology, Animal Behavior, and Paleontology are also presented with the feeling that they are of exceptional general interest to all students, as well as being thoroughly zoological.
