This second edition introduces students to the principles of biology in the context of how science relates to the survival of fish and wildlife. Students will find their interest peaked as the book integrates the principles of zoology and ecology with the lives of different kinds of wild animals that inhabit North America. The book gives descriptions of the lives, structures, growth, and classification of species in their natural habitats, and raises critical thinking questions to initiate the steps taken in the process of scientific discovery. Fish and Wildlife: Principles of Zoology and Ecology, second edition helps students appreciate how each animal is adapted to its environment and generates discussion of ways that humans and animals can reduce competition for resources that are needed by both. This second edition meets the criteria for science content for high school classes, local agriculture programs, and can also be used as a reference work.
