Many invertebrates are really spectacular to look at, so my heart was a little heavy when I first flipped through the pages. I suppose this saves them money and makes the book more affordable, but the excellent line diagrams are probably more helpful in learning tissue and organ anatomy, so I've forgiven them. The diagrams are worth half the value of the book - you really need to see the structures you are reading about to understand them. In short, its a great book, and I recommend it for the more hardnosed, curious type of student and enthusiast

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.

Invertebrate zoology is the subdiscipline of zoology that consists of the study of invertebrates, animals without a backbone (a structure which is found only in fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals. Invertebrates are a vast and very diverse group of animals that includes sponges, echinoderms, tunicates, numerous different phyla of worms, molluscs, arthropods and many additional phyla. Single-celled organisms or protists are usually not included within the same group as invertebrates.

This best-selling introduction to the biology of invertebrates through a survey by groups emphasizes adaptive morphology and physiology while covering anatomical ground plans and basic developmental patterns. Rich illustrations, systematic resumes, and extensive citations make it a valuable references source.

The text of choice for my marine invertebrates field course, I have referred back to the worn pages of this book again and again in numerous courses. Even after finishing my degree, this book remains my favourite while my copies of Brusca & Brusca and Pechenick remain untouched.
It should be noted that in these days of daily advances and discoveries, especially in the realm of molecular biology, that textbook phylogenies should generally not be trusted. Ruppert and Barnes is no different, and relationships should be found in the most recent literature (and still taken with a huge grain of salt :) ).
This 1994 edition contains references and drawings of Burgess shale organisms. Some cladograms reflect RNA nucleotide sequencing; however, reference should be made to Raven's "The Biology of Plants" for most recent evolutionary relationships.-F.M. Sturtevant, PhD
This book covers all the major taxa of invertebrate fauna and is surprisingly comprehensive for such a diverse topic.
we've started a reef tank and this book gives us the biology behind it. Great. Only get it if you want to get in depth knowledge
Ruppert and Barnes' text, now in its 6th edition sets the standard for invertebrate zoology texts. The authors provide adequate depth for undergraduate courses in invertebrate zoology, and good fodder for graduate students starting in the discipline as well.
There are outstanding collections of line drawings in the text -- a method of illustration I prefer to photographs for most instructional purposes.
There is good coverage of invertebrate animal groups, but, since it's published in 1994, there are a few places where the book is becoming dated. There is, for example, no information about the Cycliophora, the latest invertebrate phyla to be proposed.
I hope that there will continue to be new editions of this text produced. I cut my teeth on the 3rd edition, and other editions have figured prominently as I have worked through my graduate and professional careers.
Top-notch material. If you are considering which text to select for an invertebrate zoology course, I urge you to give this book a look.
A modern replacement of Libby Hyman's classic series, but, even so, is now beoming out of date because of the rapid advances in molecular biology. Dr. Barnes is deceased and I understand that Dr. Ruppert has no plans to update the book, a horrendous undertaking. Nevertheless, I know of no substitute for this fine text. Readers should also refer to Margulis & Schwartz "Five Kingdoms".
