Plant science is a fascinating and rewarding topic in its own right and a sound understanding of plants’ functions and their relationship to their environment is crucial to the future of our society. The study of plants also gives us the opportunity to develop our understanding of: (i) fundamental processes and substances; (ii) our impact on the ecosystem; (iii) strategies for feeding the world growing population and (iv) developing new cures for diseases.Specializations range from the organismal to the molecular level.

  The Relevance of Botany


Botany is the study of plants. Plants produce food and oxygen used by most other   organisms. These characteristics of plants make the study of Botany very vital in   the life of human beings. Without plants there will be no life. Botany as a subject   area constitutes interrelated disciplines and therefore it is a very broad area.
