Developed Medicinal Plant Project

Our body department has developed a unique special medicinal plant garden which has acquired 7500sqfit. area located  in a front of the department in it different types of medicinal plants species multificaition  in seed bed and get propagated and get transplanted in the subsequent space of the gardens.  38 number of plant species get planted should  identified plated  with their Nomenclature and on the entry of the doors the information about each plant spp. with their medicinal use gives in the tax chart

Set up Genetic Disease counseling center

  • Patio’s syndrome
  • Klifelter;s syndrome
  • sickle cell anemia

Helps in Identification of plant species to common man  

The nomenclature and identification of any plant species should be carried by studying in the basic knowledge of systematic botany operating  by use of different flora of that region it is also useful for the enhancement of knowledge of students of B.Sc in their syllabus basically usually different flora of region like flora of western ghats, flora of Marathwada, flora of British India, flora of Maharashtra etc used referring the identification of local vernacular plant species and find out the total systematic history of the plants from heavy to economic purpose of areas using their distinguished characters morphological  characters anatomical features and a key is used properly finding the generic and species level education for the local peoples.
