Events Details

The focus of this subject is on vertebrate and invertebrate studies at the organismic level, emphasizing comparative, anatomical, developmental morphology, adaptive radiation, functional characteristics of evolutionary significance. The study of this subject in contemporary zoology is vast; consequently, selected themes and taxa, their phylogeny, and systems, will form the topics of study. Laboratory work with preserved and live specimens and demonstrations emphasize comparative functional anatomy and techniques of biological systematics. Evolutionary innovation and the contemporary role of comparative anatomy as a path- breaking, pioneering discipline in solving new problems and generating novel theories crossing traditional interdisciplinary barriers of biological disciplines and engineering science are highlighted
