Botany is a branch of biology concerned with the study of plants. It is concerned with all aspects of the botanical study, from the smallest and simplest forms to the largest and most complex, from the study of all aspects of an individual plant to the complex interactions of all the different members of a complicated botanical community of plants with their environment and with animals.
Taxonomy is one of the botanical branches which deals with the study of classifying plant organisms. Modern taxonomic classification, based on the natural concepts and system of the Swedish botanist Carolus Linnaeus, has progressed steadily since the 18th century, modified by advances in knowledge of morphology, evolution, and genetics.
This handbook entitled “Plant Taxonomical Classification” is designed to provide information on the basic taxonomical classification of the horticultural plants found here in the Philippines. This would be of great help specifically to everyone who has the passion in classifying plant organisms. This would likewise be a substantial reference of Botany teachers and students as they venture the exciting field of Botany.
This handbook, which is a product of our collective and collaborative effort, is our response of the need of a contemporary taxonomical guide that will help the study of plants to be simple, uncomplicated and trouble-free.
