About the Book

This book is divided in two parts; the first part pertains to Morphology and Anatomy, and the second part deals with Industrial Botany. Morphology is the study of form and structure of the plants, Morphology describes the form, i.e. size, shape, etc. of the plant as it appears. Anatomy is the study of internal structure of the plants as it is observed in the section under microscope. Industrial botany is the commercial exploitation of plants by people. Industrial Botany explores the ways humans use plants for food, shelter, pharmaceuticals, bio-fuel, bio-fertilizer, textiles, and much more.

All the chapters explain the topics in detail. The book is for First Year students pursuing B.Sc. As the students are in the first year they do not have in-depth knowledge of Botany, hence the authors have included all relevant topics and explained the same for the convenience of the students. Diagrams, charts, graphs have been included so that students understand the concepts better.
