The senses of animals by L. Harrison Matthews( Book )

19 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Preface: The senses of animals-and of man-are what keep them, and us, in touch with the environment; they enable the naturalist to observe the animals he is studying and the animals to observe him and, very often, to avoid being observed by him. We have long been interested in this fascinating aspect of natural history and we hope that our book will be acceptable to all who are interested in animals, and in particular that it may be useful to the younger people who are entering upon this delightful subject in their school biology classes. Perhaps, too, those with more experience will find some matters set forth that will suggest new lines of profitable study. In writing the book it seemed to us best to divide it into two parts: the first explaining what the naturalist can observe in the field; and the second giving the more technical background of the way in which the senses of animals function. In both parts we have tried to avoid the heavy going of too many technical terms, and wherever it has been necessary to use the language of science we have, we hope, sufficiently explained it. All branches of natural history are absorbing, but we think that attention directed to the link between ourselves and the subjects of our study will be rewarding to all naturalists whether they be ornithologists, entomologists, mammalogists, or specialists in any of the other numerous subdivisions of knowledge about the living world. We trust they will find it as full of interest and problems as we have.--L. Harrison Matthews--Maxwell Knight
