This book 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, conforming 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.
The arrangement of the chapters has been done in a rational 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. 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 student to appreciate the subject and grasp it thoroughly.
