Gzimek,s Animal Life Encyclopedia is an internationally prominent scientific reference compilation, first published in German in the late 1960s, under the editorship of zoologist Bernhard Grzimek (1909-1987). In a cooperative effort between Gale and the American Zoo and Aquarium Association, the series is being completely revised and updated for the first time in over 30 years. Gale is expanding the series from 13 to 17 volumes, commissioning new color images, and updating the information while also making the set easier to use. The order of revisions is:
Vol 8-11: Birds I-IV Vol 6: Amphibians Vol 7: Reptiles Vol 4-5: Fishes I-II Vol 12-16: Mammals I-V
Vol 1: Lower Metazoans and Lesser Deuterostomes
Vol 2: Protostomes
