Unit I: Diversity of animal Kingdom I (15 Lectures) 1.1: Levels of organization 1.1.1: Unicellularity vs multicellularity Colonization and organization of germ layers (diploblastic and triploblastic condition) 1.1.2: Division of labour and organization of tissues (Brief fate of ectoderm, mesoderm and endoderm) 1.1.3: Development of coelome: Acoelomate, pseudocoelomate and coelomate organization 1.1.4: Radial and bilateral symmetry 1.1.5: Segmentation and cephalization 1.2: Unicellular and multicellular organization (Salient features with examples of phyla, subphyla and classes mentioned below) 1.2.1: Unicellular organization: Phylum Protozoa 1.2.2: Multicellular organization: Colonization level- Phylum Porifera 1.2.3: Multicellular organization: Division of labour (Cell diferentiation)Phylum Coelenterata 1.3 Triploblastic acoelomate and pseudocoelomate organization 1.3.1: Acoelomate organization - Phylum Platyhelminthes 1.3.2: Pseudocoelomate organization – Phylum Nemathelminthes 1.4: Triploblastic coelomate organization 1.4.1: Animals with metameric segmentation- Phylum Annelida 1.4.2: Animals with jointed appendages- Phylum Arthropoda Unit II: Life processes I (15 Lectures) 2.1: Movement and locomotion 2.1.1: Amoeboid movement 2.1.2: Ultra-structure of cilia and ciliary movements 2.1.3: Action of muscles (Role of muscles in movement) 2.2: Nutrition 2.2.1: Types of nutrition: Autotrophic and heterotrophic. Apparatus for nutrition: Food vacuole Animals without alimentary canal, ex. Amoeba Animals with incomplete alimentary canal, ex. Hydra Animals with complete alimentary canal, ex. Bird 2.2.2: Brief account of physiology of digestion in vertebrates and symbiotic 3   

digestion in Ruminants. 2.3: Respiration 2.3.1: Types of respiratory surfaces: General body surface: Cell membrane - ex. Amoeba Skin - ex. Earthworm and Frog Specialized respiratory structures: Trachea and spiracles, Gills of fish, Lungs of Frog and Human, Air sacs of Birds. 2.3.2: External respiration and cellular respiration with reference to human. 2.4: Circulation 2.4.1: Types of circulating fluids: Water, coelomic fluid, lymph and blood 2.4.2: Types of circulation: Protoplasmic streaming, open and closed circulation, single and double circulation 2.4.3: Hearts: Types, heart in Daphnia, cockroach and chordates (1, 2, 3 and 4 chambered heart) 2.4.4: Structure of cardiac muscles. Unit III: Ecology 3.1: Concept of Ecosystem 3.2: Concepts of energy flow, food chain and food web 3.3: Concept of biogeochemical cycles: (carbon, oxygen, nitrogen, phosphorus and water cycles) 3.4: Human activities affecting biogeochemical cycles. 3.5: Concepts of animal interactions: Symbiosis: Mutualism, commensalism, parasitism, predation and Antibiosis (15 Lectures)
