Oxford Dictionary of Zoology (Oxford Quick Reference) 5th Edition
Animal taxonomy is under constant revision and in this edition I have brought the relevant entries up to date. This has meant many changes to existing entries and the addition of new entries to describe families and orders that were missing.
I have also added to the number of entries defining words that are widely used as prefixes in common zoological and taxonomic terms.
Perhaps the biggest change has been the removal of cross-references to common names. All of these are now contained in an appendix. There are two advantages to this move. The first is that the common names, which tend to bunch, no longer interrupt the main entries. The second advantage is that I have been able to add many more common names, all in an accessible form with clear links to the entries in which they occur.
This, then, is a major revision. I hope you find the changes I have made helpful and, as always, that the dictionary will be useful to everyone who studies animals or simply enjoys reading about them.
