chapter  13
Zoology
Pages 40

Zoology is ‘‘the scientific study of animals,’’ according to the Oxford Dictionary of Biology, 4th edition 2000. Entomology is treated separately in its own chapter, because 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.
