Semester IV" has been written according to the Latest Semesterwise Syllabus RTMNU, Nagpur. In which Paper I (Anatomy and Embryology of Angiosperm) and Paper II (Genetics and Molecular Biology) has been put forth before the B.Sc. Botany students of RTM Nagpur University, Nagpur.

The theory is given in the form of points, the students will find this easy to remember. There is no substitute for simplified, clear and well labeled diagrams in botany. Such large number of simplified diagrams in the book will make it easy for the students to understand the subject easily.

To present the text in most simple & lucid language. This will make it easy for the students to understand the subject. At the end of each unit, Question bank is given which will help the students to understand how different types of questions can be asked in examination.
