Book Description

With more than two hundred illustrations. "To the "man in the street" the biologist, with his "bugs" or his "derms", frequently appears as a harmless but equally useless individual. Thus in an issue of the "New Republic" shortly after America's entrance into the world war, a seriocomic writer in criticizing the action of President Wilson in appointing a committee on national preparedness from the National Academy of Sciences says: "I doubt if any other nation ever responded to the prospect of war with a scheme of national defense which included a Committee on Zoology and Animal Morphology."" (Preface)
