Description

Practical Zoology for Advanced Level and Intermediate Students is a laboratory manual that covers various zoological experiments. The book presents methods, techniques, and illustrations relevant to zoological experiments. The text first discusses microscopical techniques, and then proceeds to tackling the morphology and anatomy of various animals. Next, the book deals with cytology and histology. The next part covers elementary biochemistry. The fifth part discusses physiology, while the sixth part covers genetics. The last part deals with vertebrate embryology. The book will be most useful to students of disciplines concerned with animal biology, such as veterinary medicine and comparative anatomy.
