This textbook has been designed to meet the needs of B.Sc. (Hons.) Second Semester students of Zoology as per the UGC Choice Based Credit System (CBCS). Comprehensively written, it explains the essential principles, processes and methodology of Coelomate Non-Chordates and Cell Biology. This textbook is profusely illustrated with well-drawn labelled diagrams, flow charts and tables, not only to supplement the descriptions, but also for sound understanding of the concepts.

• Includes comparative Anatomy of Non-Chordates
• Discussion on important topics such as Cell Signalling, Intracellular Transport (Vesicular Trafficking), Motor Proteins, Cancer and many more
• Coverage on Energy Metabolism at the level of Chloroplasts and Mitochondria
• Close to 100 boxed items throughout the text providing information on intricate terms or topics
• Engaging chapter-end exercises having more than 1900 questions to enhance and strengthen learning of the students
