FACULTY OF SCIENCE



Areas of Research:
The department of Botany is well known for their research contributions in the area of biodiversity, taxonomy, ecology and remote sensing. The department is also well established in plant anatomy and tissue culture research. The department also has moderate infrastructure facilities to conduct research in plant molecular biology and phytochemistry. At present faculty members are involved in following areas of plant research: Ecology; GIS and Ecophysiology; Taxonomy and Biodiversity; Plant Pathology and Fungal Systematics; Seed Anatomy; Ecotoxicology; Plant Anatomy and Ultrastructure; Molecular Genetics; Plant cell and Molecular Biology; Plant Tissue Culture and Fungal Biotechnology.
