Invertebrate Zoology: A Functional Evolutionary Approach 7th Edition

Edward E. Ruppert, Richard S. Fox, Robert D. Barnes

  • Published
  • Previous Editions 1994
  • 1008 Pages

Overview

Ruppert/Barnes' best-selling introduction to the biology of invertebrates is highly regarded for its accuracy and strong research base. This thorough revision provides a survey by animal group, emphasizing evolutionary origins, adaptive morphology and physiology, while covering anatomical ground plans and basic developmental patterns. New co-author Richard Fox brings to the revision his expertise as an ecologist, offering a good balance to Ruppert's background as a functional morphologist. Lavish illustrations and extensive citations make the book extremely valuable as a teaching tool and reference source.

Edward E. Ruppert, Clemson University

Professor Edward E. Ruppert attended University of North Carolina for both his undergraduate and graduate education, was a North Carolina Board of Technology Postdoctoral Fellow, Smithsonian Postdoctoral Fellow, Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institution Senior Postdoctoral Fellow, and a Smithsonian Institution Senior Postdoctoral Fellow. Professor Ruppert has received the Smithsonian Visiting Investigator Award.

Richard S. Fox, Lander University

New co-author Richard Fox brings to the revision his expertise as an ecologist, which presents a good balance to Ruppert's background as a functional morphologist. Fox's research is with arthropods, the largest group of invertebrates. He contributes a current perspective on this large group, including many changes in species classification based on molecular evolutionary research. Finally, Fox and Ruppert have co-taught several courses, and they have collaborated on two professional titles.
