The book, Basic Concepts of Botany, presents the essentials of Plant life : A comprehensive Study of Botany requires the Knowledge of Morphology of the entire plant and plant parts and its correlation with the Anatomy and Physiology : The book, confirming to this concept, is about the fundamentals of plant life including morphology, anatomy and physiology of the whole plant and its different organs : It covers not only some basic concepts of Physiological principles but also fundamentals of Soil and forestry : Each chapter has thought provoking questions at the end in order to stimulate the thinking process of the reader and to integrate their own experience. Plant Science seems totally meaningless unless the reader is acquainted with the importance and significance of Plants in human life : That is what has been done in the opening chapter of this book called Plants and Ourselves. The arrangements of the chapters has been done in a national and thoughtful manner : The Author introduces the young reader of botany with the familiar aspect of plant kingdom, that is the flowering plant-its morphology, anatomy and physiology : So the first eight chapters are all about the flowering plants : These are followed by not so familiar and the microscopic plant life like the lower plants : This enables a students to appreciate the subject and grasp it strongly.
