    Course Code:BIO102
    Course Title:General Biology II
    Course Objective:The objectives of this course are to: • give the detailed classification of animals. • emphasize the similarities and differences between various classes of animals • outline the structures and functions of animals. • explain the evolutionary sequence that exist among the animals. • explain the adaptations of organisms to their environment
    Course Synopsis:This course is explanatory and designed primarily for 100level students in biological sciences, agricultural sciences, environmental sciences and computer sciences. It introduces the students to adaptation, ecology and evolution of different groups of animals. Topics to be covered include a generalized survey of the animal kingdom based mainly on the study of similarities and differences in external features; ecological adaptation of animals; structural, functional and evolutionary study of protozoans, coelenterates, platyhelminthes, nematodes, annelids, arthropods, echinoderms and molluscs; evolutionary sequence in the form and functions of protochordates and various classes of vertebrates; introduction to ecology to include simple ecological facts in terrestrial and aquatic habitats and their relationship between an organism and its environment.
