SKU: 17a7c51673b9 Category:

The aim of this book “College Zoology” (Volume I) is to present the ambit of syllabi in a lucid way for the benefit of students. Each topic has been given equal emphasis, so that the purview of each chapter is covered in wide horizon. This text book has been designed primarily for Degree course students. The author expect`s, every student can easily comphered the matter. The volume includes non chordates (functional anatomy), cell biology, genetics, molecular biology and developmental biology, genetics, molecular biology and developmental biology containing twenty six chapters. The entire book has been divided into three segments: Functional Anatomy (chapters 1 to 8), Cytogenetics and Molecular Biology (chapters 9 to 18) and Developmental Biology (chapters 19 to 26). At the end of each chapter, a set of “Things to remember” is being provided which briskly recapitulates, the whole chapter. Besides, students can assess themselves by answering the set of “Questionnaire” given at the length of each chapter.
