In the 1920s in Berlin, Professor Willi Kükenthal initiated what would become the renowned German reference work Handbook of Zoology. The complete animal kingdom from single cell organisms to mammals is discussed in eight thematic volumes:
For the Volumes IV Arthropoda: Insecta and VII Mammalia the publication of updates continues to the present day, with the most recent contributions in English. The latest updates provided a comprehensive treatment of Annelida, published in 4 print volumes.
In 2010, the Handbook of Zoology entered a new phase as the original content (ca. 28,000 pages) was reorganized along taxonomic, instead of bibliographical, categories. Small and modular units group information together in order to better take into account the accelerated speed of scientific discovery. As a result, the new structure more aptly reflects the current state of phylogenetic knowledge.
The Handbook of Zoology is available in print and eBook and as the database Handbook of Zoology Online, which offers access to both the complete historical archive and any new content. Continual updates keep the database at the most current scientific standards due to publication of new material online-first. A taxonomic browse feature and advanced search options allow users to quickly find what they are looking for. The regular publication of updates and easy navigation of content make the Handbook of Zoology Online very useful to both authors and users.
