Zoology

Introduction

Zoology is branch of Biology concerned with the study of animal life. From prehistoric times, animals have been extremely important to man; cave art demonstrates the practical and mystical significance animals held for primitive man. Early efforts to classify animals were based on physical resemblance, habitat, or economic use. The invention of the microscope and the use of experimental techniques expanded Zoology as a field and established many of its branches, e.g., Cytology, Histology, Endocrinology etc.

Studies in Embryology and Morphology revealed about the nature of growth and the biological relationships of animals. The system of Binomial Nomenclature was devised to indicate these relationships. Modern Zoology has not only concentrated on the cell, its parts and functions but has expanded the knowledge of Cytology, Physiology, and Biochemistry. It has also explored such areas as Psychology, Anthropology and Ecology etc.
