There is an unprecedented development in every field of plant science in recent years because of rapid progress made in the areas of molecular biology in general and genomics and proteomics in particular. The skills and knowledge of botanist’s are needed worldwide helping farmers to produce crops and conservation of natural flora and fauna. There is an urgent need to understand the life cycle of several endangered plant species so as to frame suitable strategies to save them before extinction. The green plants are important as they  provide food, shelter, pure oxygen for life, cleaner environment and everything man needed for survival. The scheduled conference organized by V S Research Foundation in association with Century Foundation, Bangalore with the support from various organizations will provide a scientific platform to exchange the information on the recent advances in botanical research and to bring together the International scientific community involved in the study of plants, ecology and environment.  It will encompass the following areas for deliberation and will provide scope to plant biologists to share knowledge and exchange latest information in different scientific sessions.
