Seit über 110 Jahren wird der „KÜKENTHAL" in der Ausbildung von Studierenden der Biologie und verwandter Fächer eingesetzt. In den letzten Auflagen wurden viele neue Erkenntnisse aufgenommen und vermehrt funktionelle Aspekte berücksichtigt. Eine ganze Reihe von Abbildungen wurde durch ansprechendere ersetzt, um die ästhetische Komponente stärker zu betonen. Inhaltliche Straffungen ermöglichten es, den Umfang nahezu beizubehalten. Speziell Studienanfänger sind mit dem Problem konfrontiert, die Vielfalt der Organismen in ein System einzuordnen, das ihnen noch fremd ist. Die systematische Übersicht am Ende des Buches ist in der 27. Auflage stark erweitert und vierfarbig bebildert. Die Histologie der Tiere als wichtigem Aspekt in der Lehre ist ergänzt. Verbesserte detaillierte, farbige Situszeichnungen der wichtigsten Präparationstiere verbessern die Anschaulichkeit des Buches.
