PART - A

Invertebrate

General organization (general morphology, mode of life adaptations life cycles and economic importance) of the following groups with special reference to the topics mentioned in each group

  • Protozoa: Parasitism, conjugation and autogamy, medical importance.
  • Porifera: Canal system, skeletal structures and their taxonomic value, position of porifera in the Animal Kingdom.
  • Coelenterata: Polymorphism; measenteries corals and coral reefs.
  • Platyhelminthes: Parastic adaptations, medical importance.
  • Nematoda: Medical importance.

  • Mollusca: Shell, modifications of foot, feeding, respiration, shell fishery,
  • Arthropoda: Appendages, feeding: respiration, larvae.
  • Echinodermata: Skeleton, water vascular system, larvae.

PART - B

Chordata

Origin; comparative account of skeleton, circulatory, excretory and nervous systems, development (egg types, cleavage, blastula and gastrula, germ layer/formation, embryonic membranes and placentation) natural history (mode of life, migration, adaptations, biting mechanism of snakes)

Paper II (Marks 100)

GENERAL ZOOLOGY

The candidates will be required to attempt at least one question from each part.

Part - A
