Chapter 13: Zoology

Chapter 13: Zoology

Introduction

Zoology is "the scientific study of animals," according to the Oxford Dictionary of Biology, 4th ed, 2000.  Entomology is treated separately in Chapter 12 since it has traditionally been treated as a separate discipline.  The other branches of zoology such as ornithology or nematology are not separated in this chapter; rather, the arrangement is by type of material following the pattern established earlier.

Anatomical atlases and dissection manuals for non-human animals are found in this chapter; for human anatomy see Chapter 11, although some of the atlases and manuals in that chapter also briefly mention non-human animal anatomy.
