Message from HOD

The relationship between man and plants dates back to prehistoric times. New botanical discoveries coming out every day underscore the importance of botany as a branch of science. Botany is a department that has been performing well since its inception at Christian College, Kattakada. Since Dr Nehemiah, the first head, each faculty has worked for the gradual growth of the department. This helps the students in the department consistently achieve higher results. The department also gives students the opportunity to demonstrate their ability in extracurricular activities. With the status of being the first research center in Christian College Kattakada, the department is now stepping into the field research as well. I wish the students of this department to continue to take advantage of these opportunities and to achieve higher ranks and a better future
