About The Book

The present title "Non-Chordata - I" is an indispensable text meeting complete requirements of undergraduate and postgraduate students of Zoology. It has been designed to approach the morphology, anatomy, physiology and development of selected types in a very simple and lucid style. Accourding to the scheme of treatment, the important animal types of each phylum have been dealt with first, and efforts have been made to present their elaborate and up-to-date account. In the description of anumal types, special emphasis has been laid on the functioning of organs. General characters and classification and brief description of other important types of the phylum have also been dealt with complete authentic and up-to-date account. Adaptations of animal type have also been discussed in detail to reveal their relation with the environment.
