Chordate Zoology by E.L. Jordan,Dr. P.S. Verma
Book Summary:

The dimensions of biology are fast increasing with more and more emphasis on cell biology, molecular biology, genetics, biochemistry, physiology, electron microscopy, biotechnology and development biology (embryology), etc. The importance of basic zoology, however, cannot be ignored; most teachers and researchers rightly feel the need for a strong base in general zoology as a prerequisite for all fields of specializations. Jordan’s “Chordate Zoology” has served a great deal towards the fulfillment of this aim. It has been a national bestseller for more than four decades.
