When is an animal, not an animal?

When is an animal, not an animal? The concepts of ‘animal’ held by some New Zealand primary, secondary, and tertiary students were explored using both an interview and multiplechoice survey approach. The results indicate that many students of all ages have a restricted concept of ‘animal’ compared with that of a biologist. The implications of these results for teaching are discussed. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Biological Education Taylor & Francis
