Meet The Author

The authors feel immense pleasure and great satisfaction in releasing this text book on Economic Zoology. This text book has been designed for Undergraduate students, who choose Zoology as compulsory open elective course under NEP scheme in their first semester. This book has been prepared as per the NEP syllabus proposed by the Bangalore University and is being followed by affiliated colleges. The book contains only theory components as designed to bring about an understanding of general concepts and basic applied science of Economic Zoology. Human beings have been looking towards other living animals to use as food and for other agricultural purposes. Many are very useful to mankind such as some mammals, birds, fishes, prawns and insects in the modern era of technology and are gaining great economic importance. Some have a very good status in small scale industries which suit the aim of our nation to raise the socio-economic status by fully utilizing the man power. So the study of the economy of animals would be much rewarding for mankind. Keeping in view the national interest and also for encouraging young students to take up small scale industries as a career, National Education Policy(NEP) has included a course of ‘’Economic Zoology’’ in the syllabus of Zoology.
