Abstract

The publication of the considerably enlarged and revised fourth edition of this standard text on Protozoölogy is an indication of general endorsement of its usefulness. While it continues to be the only modern, single volume presenting basic information on protozoa for teaching the subject to advanced undergraduate and graduate students, it now becomes, in its expanded form, a valuable reference manual for investigators in this field of zoölogy.

As in previous editions, the present one is divided into two main parts, (of the phylum Protozoa), and . Part I includes separate chapters on orientation, ecology, morphology, physiology, reproduction, and variation and heredity. The author is particularly skilled in his presentation of the morphologic characteristics and reproductive capacities of representative protozoa. In contrast, the subject of physiology is not as fully considered; this is a serious defect in the balance of material, in view of the modern trends towards exploration of the metabolic patterns of living organisms.
