About The Book

College Botany vol. Two has been thoroughly revised and updated. It includes the recent changes introduced into the syllabus by the Banglore University.

The book has four parts − Pteridophytes and Paleobotany, Gymnosperms, Environmental Biology and Embryology of Angiosperms. The contents and information in all the branches have brought up to date. The embryology portion includes some of the recent researches involving ultrastructural studies and tissue culture technique.

In the environmental biology part, there is more emphasis on environmental awareness and conservation of natural sources. In this section there is a chapter on `remote sensing methods to study vegetation’.
