The book is divided into three parts and eight units:
Part I: Paper VII "Life and Diversity of Animals-Chordates (Reptilia, Ayes and Mammals)" with IV Units
Part II: Paper VIII "Molecular Biology and Immunology" with IV units
Part III: Practical based on Paper VII & VIII

The unique feature of book is point wise presentation of subject matter which will really helpful for the students while reading the book. Several illustrative diagrams have been included in the text which will help students to grasp the idea quickly and easily.
