The study of Botany, dealing with the structure, function, classification and evolution of plants, has inspired many great minds. Plants are unique as solar energy converters and providers of energy for all heterotrophic organisms. It is fascinating to study the wide spectrum of reproductive processes in algae, fungi, lichens, bryophytes, gymnosperms, and flowering plants. A student of Botany has been learning these aspects together with taxonomy, anatomy, plant pathology, plant breeding, microbiology, plant physiology, plant biochemistry, ecology, cytology, genetics, cytogenetics, molecular biology and plant biotechnology.
The Department of Botany was established in 2019 with a view to train the students desirous of learning, understanding, teaching and practicing various aspects of plant sciences. There is one laboratory in the department. The laboratory is well maintained with necessary equipments purchased out of grants provided by Management. The department is enriched with learning resources such as specimens, slides & various practice materials.
The vision of the department is to think big and achieve the same with the vision of the faculty and hard work of the students, as told by Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam – “To explore and not to exploit the plant world”.
