Microbes in human welfare : In household food processing, industrial production, sewage treatment, energy generation and as biocontrol agents and biofertilizers.
Animal Husbandry : Management of farms and farm animals ( dairy, poultry, animal breeding, bee keeping, fisheries, sericulture, lac culture.
Vermiculture Definition and procedure, vermicomposed – degradation of organic waste and role of earthworm in soil fertility.

Unit XI Ecology and Environment
Habitat and niche : Organisms and environment: habitat and niche, population and ecological adaptations; population interactions – mutualism, competition, predation, parasitism; population attributes – growth, birth rate and death rate, age distribution.
Ecosystems : patterns & energy flow, components; productivity and decomposition; energy flow; pyramids of number, biomass, energy; nutrient cycles ( carbon and phosphorous ); ecological succession; ecological services – carbon fixation, pollination, oxygen release.
Biodiversity and its conservation : concept of biodiversity; patterns of biodiversity; importance of biodiversity; loss of biodiversity; biodiversity conservation; hotspots, endangered organisms, extinction, Red Data Book, biosphere reserves, national parks and sanctuaries. Benefits of biodiversityeconomic traditional crop varieties, animals of food value, medicinal plants harvested form wild habitats. Ecological / socialfor controlling soin-water regimes and hydrology, for efficient organic residue management and soil fertility management, ethical cultural, spiritual and religious belief system centered around the concept of scared species, sacred groves and sacred landscapes.
Biodiversity depletion-anthropocentric causes-urbanization, expansion of griculture, deforestation, pollution, acidification of soil and water, Mining activities, desertification and loss of soil fertility. Intellectual property rights- patenting life forms.
Environmental issues : Air pollution and its control; water pollution and its control; agrochemicals and their effects; solid waste management; radioactive waste management; greenhouse effect and global warning; ozone depletion; deforestation; any three case studies as success stories addressing environmental issues.
