The sexual stage of Plasmodium takes place in female Anopheles mosquito whereas the vegetative stage occurs in man. When a female Anopheles mosquito bites an infected person, these parasites enter the mosquito and undergo further development in the mosquito body. The parasites multiply within the body of the mosquito to form sporozoites that are stored in the salivary glands of mosquito. When these mosquitoes bite a person, the sporozoites the infectious stage are introduced into his body; they multiply within the liver cells first and enter the RBC of man, resulting in the rupture of RBC.
This results in the release of toxic substance called haemozoin which is responsible for the chill and high fever, recurring three to four days.
He had his school education and higher studies in medicine in England. Later he was posted at the Presidency General Hospital, Calcutta. Ross studied about malaria between and As he was working in Bangalore, he noticed the connection between water as breeding ground of mosquitoes and the spread of malaria.
He discovered the presence of malarial parasites in the female Anopheles mosquito when he was working on malaria at Secunderabad. He demonstrated that malaria is transmitted from infected individual to a healthy person by the bite of mosquito.

But when it is the question of main- tenance of an order, a systematic working among them, there is a need for someone to control and co-ordinate them so that a harmony prevails.
Similarly the functions of organs and organ system is our body cannot go on in their own way but must be coordinated to maintain the harmon- ius steady state of body functioning called Homeostasis.
Coordination is the proc- ess through which two or more organs interact and compliment the functions of one or the other. In our body the neural or nervous system and the endocrine sys- tem do the function of coordinating and integrating all the activities of the organs so that the body works efficiently by syn- chronizing the functions.

This forms the major part of the human brain nearly two third of the brain is cer- ebrum. A deep cleft called median cleft divides the cerebrum longitudinally into two halves as right and left cerebral hemi- spheres, which are united at the base by a sheet of nervous tissue called corpus callosum, The outer region of the cere- brum is distinguished as, the grey matter or cerebral cortex and the inner region is called white matter.
Cerebral cortex: It consists of the nerve cell bodies of several layers of greyish nerve cells giv- ing grey colour — so called as grey matter. The increased surface area of the cer- ebral cortex in man is folded and thrown into a pattern of convolutions consisting of ridges and furrows.
Cerebral cortex contains: Motor areas: Motor areas are the sites of order or command of the cerebrum, from where Fig 3. Chapter 3 tiation of voluntary activities takes place here. Functions of cerebrum: Cerebrum is the seat of conscious- ness, intelligence, memory, imagina- tion and reasoning.
It receives impulses from different parts of the body and initi- ates voluntary activities. Specific areas of cerebrum are associated with spe- cific functions. Thus there is a centre for hearing, another for seeing, another for tasting, another for smelling, another for speaking and so on. A damage in a specific centre of cerebrum will de- prive the particular faculty from doing its Fig 3.
Sensory areas: Cerebrum wraps around a structure These are the sites where the sensory called thalamus — a major conducting functions of the various sense organs are centre for sensory and motor signalling.
Association areas: It lies at the base of the thalamus. It These are responsible for complex controls body temperature, urge to eat and functions like intersensory associations, drink, regulation of sexual behaviour, ex- memory and communication. White matter of cerebrum: The inner part of the cerebrum ly- ing below the cerebral cortex is called white matter and it consists of bundles of nerve fibres with myelin sheath giv- ing the white colour.
Some of these bun- dles of nerve fibres connect the different parts of the cerebrum while others con- nect the cerebrum with the rest of the brain and spinal cord. Within the cerebral hemispheres are present cavities called ventricles, filled with a nutritive fluid called cerebro spinal Fig 3.

The chemical coordination of physiological processes to maintain the homeostasis is the work of endocrine system. Endocrines control and coordinate the physical proc- esses of growth, reproduction and suste- nance of life. Endocrine system consists of a number of endocrine glands and their hormones.
Endocrine glands are ductless glands without ducts , secreting the chemical substances called hormones. The hor- mones are carried by the blood from the site of production to the site of action. Fig 3. The various en- docrine glands found in different regions Chemically hormones are proteins or in man are as follows: Though the hor-. Pituitary gland: It is a tiny gland of the size of a pea at- tached to the hypothalamus of the brain.
Since some of the endocrine glands are regulated by the pituitary gland, it is called as the conductor of endocrine orchestra. Divisions or lobes of pituitary gland Pituitary gland is differentiated into an anterior lobe called adenohypophysis and a posterior lobe called neurohypo- physis. Adenohypophysis It secretes a number of hormones.
The important hormones and their functions and malfunctions are as follows: Chapter 3 Follicle stimulating hor- It stimulates the maturation of graafian follicles in mone FSH the ovary in the female, to produce the eggs and sperm formation in the males.

Hormones of Neuro Functions and malfunctions hypophysis Oxytocin It speeds up the child birth process, by stimulating the contraction and relaxation of the uterus in the female.
Vasopressin It helps in the reabsorption of water, producing concen- or antidiuretic hor- trated urine in small quantity. Thyroid gland: Functions of thyroxine: Thyroxine is an iodinated of tissues. Thyroid gland bulges as a swelling in the neck and it is called as goiter. The symptoms are high metabolic rate, high blood pressure, high irritability, profuse sweating, loss of weight, fatigueness and protrusion of eyeballs.

Re- production is a special biological process, by which new individuals of the same spe- cies are produced. It is one of the bio- logical processes like nutrition, respiration and excretion etc. What will happen if there is no repro- duction? Fig 4. Let us examine how different organisms actually reproduce. The methods by which organisms reproduce depend upon the body shape and structure of organ- isms.
Unicellular organisms, like amoeba and bacteria, split into two equal halves and produce new ones which is called bi- nary fission. Some Bacteria, like Lactobacilli, Sal- monella multiply rapidly, others like Fig 4. Mention a few methods a cool, moist and dark place.

Evolution may be defined as a grad- ual development of more complex species from pre-existing forms. On Depending upon the body organiza- this basis, the reproduction in sim- tion of multicellular organisms, there are pler forms, like Amoeba and Bacteria, various methods of reproduction. In multicellular organisms with simple body organization, simple reproductive methods have been noticed.

They get attracted and a strong bond is formed. The first one is electronic configuration.
The bond formation is discussed through Bohr model. Another method is Lewis structure or electron-dot structure. The metals and non-metals are written with their symbol and dots. Number of dots represents number of outermost electron. The properties of ionic bond are discussed which are based on strong ionic bond formation. Extraction of metal is taught. Metals are extracted from minerals, from their ores. Ores are minerals from which extraction of metal is profitable.
Impurities are removed and after that processing take place according to reactivity of metals.
Higher reactive metals are extracted by electrolysis. Middle reactive metals are first converted into oxides and then reduced to metal.
Metals lower in reactivity series such as gold, silver, platinum etc are found in native state and they need not be processed. After this refining of metal is done which is another level of purification. The extracted metals are needed to be protected from corrosion.
Lot of money is spent on this. Many methods such as oiling, greasing, electroplating, galavanisation are discussed.
Another method is alloying. It is the process of mixing metals with another metals or non-metals. It makes metal corrosion-free and enhances the strength. Steel is an alloy of metal Iron and Non-metal Carbon, used for construction. Other such alloys are stainless steel, brass, bronze, duralumin etc. Chapter 4 - Carbon and its compounds Carbon is versatile element found in many organic and inorganic compounds.
The reason of this is its tetravalency and catenation which has been discussed. Carbon form bond by sharing its electrons with other elements. Such bond formations of elements formed by sharing of electron is called covalent- bond formation. Covalent Bond formation is explained for other covalent bond formed compounds such as in oxygen gas, nitrogen gas, and covalent formed compounds. Structure of different carbon compounds is explained.
For example, Organic compounds is formed in straight chains, or branched chains or cyclic chains. Organic compounds are also categorised on the basis of saturated and Unsaturated compound.
Saturated compounds are compounds with only single bond. Unsaturated carbon compounds are compounds with double or triple bond. Organic compounds are basically chain of carbon-Hydrogen. Functional groups can be atom or group of atoms attached to the chain of hydrogen-Carbon. A system of naming that large number of atoms nomenclature is also taught.
Soaps and detergents are studied with their chemical structure and properties. Their difference is also discussed. The detergents are used for cleaning purpose in hard water.
Chapter 5 - Periodic Classification of Elements There are known elements found till date. It is better to study each elements in proper way. For this we need to classify them in an order. If categorized in order, we can easily predict some trends in physical and chemical properties of elements.
Therefore scientists worked to arrange all elements such that alike elements can be placed in certain rows and column. But, this methodology did not worked for every element. Only three triads can be detected. In , John Newlands, tried to arrange elements. Newlands Octave was another method to classify elements. In this every eighth element will show property of first element if placed in order of atomic mass. It was similar to musical notes where first node is similar to eighth.
It also failed as it was not able to work for more than 56 elements. Another method was adopted by Dmitri Mendeleev. Mendeleev arranged the elements based on their atomic masses. He observed that when the elements were arranged in increasing order of their atomic masses, there was a periodic recurrence in their physical and chemical properties.
It was much accurate than previous models. It also had some demerits. Finally, modern periodic came into existence. Atomic number was considered to be criteria for classification.
Elements with same group have same number of outermost electron. Elements in same period have same number of outermost shell. A particular increase to decrease in certain pattern can be predicted. Many such trends are studied in this chapter.
Chapter 6 - Life Process Life processes are various activities performed by living beings for sustaining the life. Such processes are digestive system, respiration system, circulation system etc.
All these things are important to leave. The thing is to consume food through digestive system, perform oxidation of food which involves the process of respiration, and transportation of food and water which is done through circulation. This chapter starts with process of nutrition. The process in which an organism takes in food, utilizes it to get energy, for growth, repair and maintenance, etc.
Other modes of nutrition are autotrophic and heterotrophic nutrition which are discussed in chapter. Autotrophic nutrition is done by plants by photosynthesis. Heterotrophic nutrition is done by animals. Different types of Heterotrophic nutrition are discussed. Parasitic Nutrition, saprophytic Nutrition and Holozonic Nutrition are different types of heterotrophic nutrition. Cellular nutrition is done by unicellular organisms which has been discussed in this chapter.
Next topic is nutrition by human beings. It starts with mouths which include salivary glands, tongue and teeth. The food goes to stomach through oesophagus. The food goes to stomach. Liver secretes greenish yellow liquid called bile juice. Pancreas lies behind the lower portion of stomach. It secretes pancreatic juice which contains many digestive enzymes. All such processes are discussed in this digestive system. Next is respiration.
The process of respiration involves: a Gaseous exchange i. Breathing: Intake of oxygen from the atmosphere and release of CO2. And b Cellular respiration: Breakdown of simple food in order to release energy inside the cell. Both are discussed. The human respiration system is discussed with some special attention. Pharynx ,bronchio lungs, diaphragm are different elements of human respiratory system. Mechanisam of process involves inhale and exhale. Both are explained.
Circulation involves the process of transportation of food and other materials from one place to another. The blood is pumped through heart and transported through veins. So, all of them are discussed. Different components of blood are discussed-Red blood cells and White blood cells.
Four chambers of heart are discussed. In plants, We have discussed earlier how plants take in simple compounds such as CO2 and photosynthesise energy stored in their chlorophyll-containing organs, namely leaves. The other kinds of raw materials needed for building plant bodies will also have to be taken up separately. For plants, the soil is the nearest and richest source of raw materials like nitrogen, phosphorus and other minerals.
The absorption of these substances therefore occurs through the part in contact with the soil, namely roots. It has been discussed in details. The biological process involved in the removal of these harmful metabolic wastes from the body is called excretion.
Different organisms use varied strategies to do this. It is discussed in details for human beings. Chapter 7 - Control and Coordination System Earlier, we had started with a notion we all have, that if we see something moving, it is alive. Some of these movements are in fact the result of growth, as in plants. A seed germinates and grows, and we can see that the seedling moves over the course of a few days, Control and coordination are the functions of the nervous system and hormones in our bodies.
The responses of the nervous system can be classified as reflex action, voluntary action or involuntary action. The nervous system uses electrical impulses to transmit messages. The nervous system gets information from our sense organs and acts through our muscles.
Chemical coordination is seen in both plants and animals. Hormones produced in one part of an organism move to another part to achieve the desired effect. A feedback mechanism regulates the action of the hormones. Chapter 8 - How do organisms reproduce?
Reproduction, unlike other life processes, is not essential to maintain the life of an individual organism. It involves creation of a DNA copy and additional cellular apparatus by the cell involved in the process. Notify me of follow-up comments by email. Notify me of new posts by email.
