As beauty is bound up with the rationale of symmetry there are two different forms of the life, categorised as the taxonomic groups and interrelations of the plant life and the animal life. Botany is variously known as the plant sciences or phytology. It is also called as plant biology. The applied science and scientific foundations which are utilized to harness the applied and scientific technology in its allied fields is therefore a boon in the parcel and hedges of this beautiful symmetry and overarching classification. The beauty of plants has attracted the attention of scientists for centuries. The disntinctive bilateral symmetry of leaves, the exemplary rotational artefacts and symmetry of flowers, and the helical arrangements of scales in various plants form the extensive sublime for research on plants around the world as we understand that all living things are cells or composed of cells.

Therefore the students and the teachers should be oriented about the scientific nature and structure of this nature’s principal paradigm. The investigative research should be adopted and taught to cater to the scientific needs of the pupil and the teachers. The scope of this palette is tremendous in the areas of ethnobotany and bioinformatics. The technological tools should be utilized to understand the relational stance of the plant biology with the allied discourses and notions in the different areas of science and the relationships with their different vistas. Therefore there should be no epistemic akrasia rather the plant biology content should be devised keeping in view the role of the pollen germination and remote sensing parameters. The indigenous and the traditional knowledge should be developed by the government biologists and anthropologists. More experience and empirical foundations should be drawn in the field of phytology to produce viable results in agriculture, horticulture and in the sectors of floriculture.

The survival techniques of the plants should be used to protect the plants from drought and similar environmental conditions and factors. The areas in the domain of ethnobotany have opened the gateways in the areas of diverse subjects and fields like the agroforestry, archaeology, ecology, botany and forestry. It is apt to mention here that ethnobotany is an interdisciplinary science which includes both aspects of sciences and humanities. Thence different cultures use the resources of plants differently. The evolution of the structure and composition of plants varies from diversity to diversity and it is evident from the folk-taxonomy that different people classify plants differently.

The human management of floriculture, forestry and systematics and ornamentals of plants is used by various societies according to their classification standards and trends in the plant sciences. Plants are very vital and important to the world and the true discourse on food and energy chains would not begin without the starting engine and directional goal of the plant life. There are however certain exceptions, for example green slugs fall in the dichotomy of both plants and animals. In the same vein, still there are plants which can be bacteria as well as animals. Thence certain plants are ecological in nature i.e. their hierarchies and transitions are directly related to the inherent system of nature, while certain plants are taxonomical in nature and structure. That is, their evolution is based on multi-tissued and terrestrial aspects of plant life.
