Abstract

The ancient history of India has indicated the relationship of plants and human beings. Taxonomy is the systematic arrangement and naming groups of biological organisms such as plants and animals on the basis of shared characteristics.  These scientific names hold considerable power, as well as being a universal language with which to communicate about particular plants among different cultures. It involves hard field oriented work. It needs careful observation, analytical mind and a little above average of intelligence to analyse and in weighting of a taxon to determine it at species or infraspecific level. Yet the science behind delimiting the natural world into “species” is often neglected, misunderstood or even derided in some quarters. This may lead to the arbitrary substitution plants Ayurveda. In order to reduce this, the identification and authentication of plants are essential.
