The Wikibook entitled The Anatomy and Physiology of Animals is designed for students studying for the New Zealand National Certificate in Animal Care, The National Certificate in Veterinary Nursing and the Certificate in Rural Animal Technology. It is intended to cover the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) Unit Standard 5180.

To help students study and learn the material in each of the 16 chapters, worksheets and crosswords have been created. These can be accessed from the links below.

As well as the worksheets above, each chapter of the Wikibook has Test Yourselves that allows students to see whether they have understood and remembered the material.

A Library of Resources contains lists of useful websites, many with animations that help illustrate concepts described in the chapters.
