Research activities relate to the heavy metal and environmental
stress on plants, air pollution and impact on plant form, function
and medicinal properties, genetic characterization of medicinal
plants, ethnobotany and plant systematic, meristematic behaviour
and secondary plant growth, tissue culture studies for alkaloid
production, multiplication and preservation of endangered species,
transmission and application of variation in plants, etc.
Herbal garden is also maintained within the campus
for developing cultivation methods of medicinal and aromatic plants. It is proposed to set up independent labs in different
disciplines such as Developmental Botany, Medicinal Botany, Plant
Physiology, Environmental Botany, Phytotaxonomy, Genetics and Plant
tissue Culture, etc.
