                         This chapter covers the basic anatomy and physiology of common animals. It has
                       the following objectives:

                           1   Explain taxonomy and scientific names
                           2   List and describe the major animal groups
                           3   Identify the life processes of animals
                           4   Explain the structural basis of animals
                           5   Describe the anatomy of common animals
                           6   Explain the structure and parts of bones
                           7   Identify the major organ systems of animals and explain the physiology
                               of each
