The objective of this note is to provide
a knowledge of basic botany, teach specific information about economically
important plants, and instill skills in critically researching a topic on an
economically important plant. Topics covered includes: plant morphology and
taxonomy, Plant anatomy and physiology, Plant anatomy, Vegetable plants,
Flowering plants, Spices, Herbs; Essential oils, fragrances, perfumes, Genetics;
plant breeding, cultivars, Cereal grains, Alcoholic beverages, Gordon Biersch
Brewery, Fiber plants,Medicinal plants.
This guide explains
the following topics: Life domains and phylogeny of tree growth on Earth, Plant Cell,
Tissues, Roots, The stem, Leaf, Propagation and reproduction of woody plants,
Basics of woody plant physiology, Respiration, Photorespiration, Water regime of
woody plants, Mineral nutrition of woody plants and the significance of

This book, explains the synthesis of information
for developing strategies to combat plant stress. The information covered in
this book would bridge the much-researched area of stress in plants with the
much-needed information for evolving climate-ready crop cultivars to ensure food
security in the future.
This book is designed to furnish classes
in our schools and colleges with a suitable text book of Structural and
Physiological Botany, as well as private students with a convenient introductory
manual, adapted to the present condition of the science.
The purpose of this note is to to give the students a general idea
of the principles of the science, rather than a comprehensive survey of the
whole vegetable kingdom. In a short course of this nature it is impossible to
include examples of every group, and therefore those types have been selected
with which it is moat important that the student should become acquainted.
This book covers the following topics: Plant Societies, The Plant Body, Seeds and Germination, The Root — The Forms of
Roots, Function and Structure, The Stem — Kinds and Forms, Pruning and General
Structure, Leaves: Form, Position, Structure, Anatomy and Function or Work,
When in 1874, the first edition of Fenner's Complete Formulary (then a
small pamphlet) was issued it was the pioneer in a new field of pharmacy, and
furnished the first reliable line of formulas for elixirs and the so-called
Elegant Preparations which were then coming rapidly into use.
Nathaniel Lord Britton was the first director-in-chief of The New
York Botanical Garden and a giant of a taxonomist. From 1896 to 1898 he
published the three-volume landmark floristic study An Illustrated Flora of the
Northern United States and Canada (Brown financed it), and revised it again in
1913. This book contains 149 individual plant files, each with illustration, taxonomy, distribution
and current botanical name.
