Methods of Field Studies in Botany
Different methods of collecting, preparation, and preservation of plant collections are very important for botanical field studies. Processed and labeled plants are stored in herbaria in which they are conserved and then used for taxonomic, floristic and phytogeographical studies, and then as the evidence and display material. Besides, various analyses of plant communities and their habitats are used in botanical studies of the flora of our surroundings. Field and literature data, as well as, personal communications and oral presentations are very important sources of scientific information used in flora mapping of a certain region.
