Such a course focuses on the scientific study of plants, microbial organisms related to them and plant habitats and ecosystem relations. This stream of study also includes instruction in phytochemistry, plant anatomy and structure, cytology, plant genetics, plant morphology and physiology.Botany degree is extremely helpful for those persons who want to get involved in further research in this field. In recent times, the ratio of scientific exploration has extended to a great extent and scientists are keen on exploring more plant species. The main intention is to search a proper avenue which can provide more assurance to the deteriorating ecosystem and can produce great medicines from which life saving drugs can be produced.
