Zoology (from the Greek: zoon = animal; logos = discourse) is the biological discipline that deals with the study of animals (or metazoans) and protozoa, including classification, physiology, development, and behavior. The latter, although not real animals, due to biological similarities and phylogenetic affinity, in the past were considered effective members of the animal kingdom and only later were transferred to the more accepted kingdom of protists.
