P.G. Department of Botany

Department of Botany was established in 2004 for the undergraduate course (B.Sc Medical). Botany has a very important place in the life of human beings. It makes the students acquainted with the morphology, physiology, biochemistry of plants and their importance in sustaining life in the biosphere. In order to make students well versed with the subject, well-established Botany laboratories and Botanical Garden is there in college. Plants exists in different forms ranging from microscopic to macroscopic and based on the morphology and anatomy, the plants are categorized into Algae, Fungi, Bryophytes, Pteridophytes, Gymnosperms and Angiosperms. For making the students aware of this categorization, the department is having ample working material and specimens. The laboratory is equipped with trinocular, binocular, compound and dissection microscopes for the visualization of microscopic specimens. A set up of Plant Tissue Culture laboratory is there for raising the plants under controlled conditions and to study the effect of changing environmental conditions.  Botanical Garden is having most of the flora mentioned in the course content along with plants of economic importance. To understand the physiological processes and biochemical constituents of plants, necessary apparatuses and chemicals are there in the laboratory. Plants are variously modified in order to adapt in the surrounding environments. The specimens showing such modifications can be visualized in the specimen jars by the students. The students are also made well versed with the ecological aspects of the plants in the laboratory and field conditions. This subject has wide scope in the field of education i.e. teaching and research. It opens up wide choices for the students for further studies e.g. microbiology, genetics, biotechnology, environment etc.
