This book has been prepared by The Directorate of School Education on behalf of the Government of Tamilnadu. This book has been printed on 60 GSM Paper. Preface Biology or Life science has made rapid progress. Advancements in several fields of Science and Technology have provided the tools to understand life processes. As humanity faces several problems related to population growth, environmental degradation, energy crisis, epidemic diseases, food production and species extinctions the challenges faced by the biologists in finding appropriate solutions to such issues has become his/.
3 Her sacred duty. Thus the future remedial measures for ensuring human sur- vival and biosphere safeguarding shall require a vast army of personnel with a sound knowledge of Biology. Hence the scope for future biologists is evergrowing. The contents of this book provide basic informations on several fields of biology that have become life supporting disciplines. The students are exposed to fascinating fields such as Human Physiology, Medicine, Microbiology, Immunology, Bio-informatics, Environmental Biology, Genomics, Aquaculture, Medical Laboratory Techniques, Livestock management etc. More information related to these fields can be obtained from appropriate websites and reference books.
4 Contents in this book have been prepared in such a way that the students can have a glimpse of several disciplines and might help them to decide on their future career and further given study plans. Further, the materials given are technical information that provide knowledge for to-day's living. T. Sargunam Stephen Chairperson Biology ( ZOOLOGY ).
