The "College Zoology (Volume II)" has been published with an objective to quench the knowledge of degree course students in various aspects needless to mention, the book has been concise without going into unnecessary ins and outs. Simultaneously, a rigorous and a proficient approach in undertaken to keep pace with the current era.
This volume compasses of chordates (functional anatomy), ecology, animal behaviour, biodiversity, wildlife, endocrinology, animal physiology and biochemistry with twenty two chapters. Since biodiversity, protection of wild lives specially rare and endangered species and pollution important in the world of life science, much light has been throw on these topics.
Assassination of "Things to Remember" and "Questionnaire" provided at the end of each chapter are perhaps the best way of placing one`s understanding of a subject on a solid foundation. This will invoke stimuli among the students to assess themselves at each step.
