Books V & VI Animal reproduction.

Book VII Human reproduction.

Book VIII Habits (food, migration, health, diseases).

Book IX Social behavior.

Book X Dealing with barrenness in women was excluded from the translation of D'Arcy Thompson for being spurious so the translation of the Clergyman Richard Cresswell (Vicar of Salcombe Regis, Devon) is used instead.
