The discipline of botany deals with the course content of plant sciences and the utility of plants in relation to mankind. The course content of botany is so vast that the number of branches has been increasing day by day. Branches like morphology, anatomy, histology and cytology give us an idea about what plants are, and to what extent they are diverse. The entire living world, especially human being, is directly or indirectly dependent on plants. Botany, along with its allied branches, provides employment opportunities in the field of medicine and pharmacy. There is also enormous employment scope in agriculture, horticulture, forestry, etc.
