Capacity Building in Plant Taxonomy

Lack of expertise in the taxonomy of various groups of plants had been a major constraint in fulfilling some of the commitments of the Convention on Biological Diversity. The Survey organises regular programmes for training Research Scholars in different groups of plant Taxonomy for the award of Ph.D. degree by various Indian Universities.

The survey also imparts in-service basic and advance training in plant taxonomy and herbarium methodology to other institutions.

"All India co-ordinated project on the Capacity Building in Taxonomy”, funded by the MoEF, a Centre each for Lichens and Bryophytes and Grasses and bamboos have been established at Allahabad, Kolkata and Coimbatore circles of Botanical Survey of India to develop expertise in these groups of plants.
