Chapter–2 : Biological Classification
Five kingdom classification; Salient features and classification of Monera, Protista and Fungi into major groups; Lichens,Viruses and Viroids.

Chapter–3 : Plant Kingdom
Salient features and classification of plants into major groups – Algae, Bryophyta, Pteridophyta, Gymnosperms and Angiosperms (three to ve salient and distinguishing features and at least two examples of each category); Angiosperms –classification upto class , characteristic features and examples.

Chapter–4 : Animal Kingdom
Salient features and classification of animals non-chordates up to phyla level and chordates up to class level (three to five salient features and at least two examples of each category).

Unit–II Structural Organisation in Animals and Plants

Chapter–5 : Morphology of Flowering Plants
