Department Of Botany

We need plants to survive because they provide essential foundation for life on the earth. The study of the plants is called ‘Botany’. The term “Botany” comes from the ancient Greek word βοτάνη (botanē) meaning “pasture”, “grass”, or “fodder”. Plants increases natural beauty and also make our environment clean and green.

This old hymn reflects the importance of Mother Nature. The significance of plants and trees to human life is exemplified in VarahPuran which advocates regular plantation as a mean to achieve Haven.
