Branches of zoology

  • Acarology â€" study of mites and ticks
  • Anthrozoology â€" study of interaction between humans and other animals
  • Arachnology â€" study of spiders and related animals such as scorpions, pseudoscorpions, and harvestmen, collectively called arachnids
  • Entomology â€" study of insects
    • Myrmecology â€" study of ants
  • Ethology â€" study of animal behaviour, usually with a focus on behaviour under natural conditions, and viewing behaviour as an evolutionarily adaptive trait
  • Herpetology â€" study of amphibians and reptiles
    • Batrachology â€" study of amphibians including frogs and toads, salamanders, newts, and caecilians
  • Ichthyology â€" study of fish
  • Malacology â€" study of mollusks
  • Mammalogy â€" study of mammals
  • Neuroethology â€" study of animal behavior and its underlying mechanistic control by the nervous system
  • Ornithology â€" study of birds
  • Paleozoology â€" study of deals with the recovery and identification of multicellular animal remains from geological (or even archeological) contexts, and the use of these fossils in the reconstruction of prehistoric environments and ancient ecosystems
  • Parasitology â€" study of parasites, their hosts, and the relationship between them
    • Helminthology â€" parasitic worms (helminths)
  • Protozoology â€" study of study of protozoan, the "animal-like" (i.e., motile and heterotrophic) protists
  • Endocrinology â€" study of endocrine systems
  • Nematology â€" study of nematodes (roundworms)
