Course description

This subject is to provide comprehensive information on the Animal Kingdom and to reveal comparative features of categories which may be important during later studies. After an introduction general zootaxonomy is discussed, focusing on important phyla of protozoa, and then on those of multicellular animals, including porifera, cnidarians, flatworms, roundworms, annelids, molluscs, arthropods, echinoderms and vertebrates (fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, mammals). This is followed by an insight into evolution biology, ecology, population biology, supraindividual organization and behaviour science. Zoology is essential as a prerequisite to parasitology and other subjects.
