This is the only department in this college and also among the other affiliated colleges from this region whose laboratory was first to be recognised for research by the university way back in 1962 under the able guidance of Dr. A. Gopalkrishnan, D.Sc., and his internationally recognised pioneering work on Bats started in this department.

The museum in this department is the oldest in this region having good representation of preserved and stuffed animals from different phyla. The museum is helpful to the students for practical purpose and general knowledge, and is open to the visitors during working days. The above mentioned best infrastructure made it easy for the Government to sanction Post Graduate course (M.Sc.) in 1993 and was run up to 2002, which has benefited 160 students, among whom many are in first division and merit rank holders in the University.
