4.0 out of 5 stars must have for zoo ed May 14 2009
By xenia - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This is a great tool for anyone taking a class or just really interested in anything zoological. It saved me many hours looking up words on the internet. The dictionary of zoology is clear, concise and thorough. I wish i had purchased it sooner.

4.0 out of 5 stars Oxford Dictionary of Zoology Jan. 22 2011
By Spider Monkey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
`The Oxford Dictionary of Zoology' as it's name suggests is a dictionary of zoological terms and words. In a basic format it covers a great deal from Aardvark to Zymogenous and it also has a few (and I do a mean a few) diagrams to illustrate more complex entries more clearly. This isn't a glossy, all colour book about zoology, but rather a simple, functional book to be used by zoological students or dedicated amateur naturalists. This also has various chapters at the back covering Endangered Animals, The Universal Genetic Code, Geologic Time-Scale and SI units. This is a clear, well referenced dictionary that should be immensely valuable to students, but of minimal interest to those who have only a passing interest in wildlife or zoology. For these people I would recommend DK's excellent book called `Animal' which is large, glossy, beautifully illustrated and comprehensive.

Feel free to check out my blog which can be found on my profile page.
3.0 out of 5 stars Lots of text March 14 2012
By Tero - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was hoping for more charts and illustrations.

More for the professional than the hobbyist. Still, it has the vocabulary if you are reading difficult texts.
