 Preface
The most important and crucial stage of school education is the higher secondarylevel. This is the transition level from the generalised curriculum to a discipline-based curriculum.In order to pursue their careers in basic sciences and professional courses,students take up Botany as one of the subjects. To provide them sufficientbackground to meet the challenges of academic and professional streams, theBotany textbook for Std. XII has been reformed, updated and designed to includebasic information on all topics.Each chapter starts with an introduction followed by subject matter. All thetopics are presented in clear and concise manner. The chapters end with self-evaluation questions.Understanding the concept is more important than rote memory. Science maybe learnt by rote, but wisdom not. Hence, it is desired to make the studentsunderstand the subject thoroughly, so that they can putforth their ideas clearly. Inorder to make the learning of Botany more interesting and thorough, applicationof concepts in real life situations is presented in this text.Due importance has been given to develop skills in experimentation andobservation. The learning experience makes them to appreciate the role of botanytowards the improvement of our society.Following are the salient features of this text.
The data has been systematically updated.
The line diagrams are neatly presented.
Self-evaluation questions are included to sharpen the reasoning ability of the students.
While preparing for the examination, students should not restrict themselves, only to the questions given in the self-evaluation. They must be prepared to answer the questions from the text.
Several items of learning materials of biological interests have been put in boxes in the text to arouse curiosity and to add current ideas among students. These are not to be counted as contents for examinations.
