Summary
The Great Courses teams up with the Smithsonian's National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute, to take you behind the scenes of the animal world. This introduction to zoology brings you up close and personal with a breathtaking variety of animal species through the eyes of a trained zoologist. Throughout these lectures, you'll explore the fundamentals of zoology (including the relationship between genetics and environment), dive into the different orders of life on our planet (from the ocean depths to the highest tree tops), and investigate special subjects intriguing today's zoologists (including animal behavior and conservation). You'll also meet some of most incredible animals on Earth: butterflies, bears, crocodiles, tigers, giant pandas, elephants, gorillas, and more. And thanks to exclusive footage from the Smithsonian's National Zoo, you'll be able to see these animals in action, up close and without the crowds
