  1. Question: Can you share your experience in research and teaching in the relevant field, specifically related to taxonomy? Have you worked with any of the following groups – Angiosperm, Bryophytes, Lichens, Fungi, or Algae? Answer: I have experience in both research and teaching in the field of Botany, with a specific focus on Angiosperms and Bryophytes. I have been involved in various taxonomic studies, conducting research on plant classification and identification. Additionally, I have taught courses on taxonomy and plant diversity, providing valuable exposure to the subject matter.

Answer: Floristic studies involve documenting the diversity of plant species in a particular region, including their distribution and characteristics. My approach includes thorough field surveys, specimen collection, and data analysis to create comprehensive species inventories. Accurate plant identification is crucial for understanding ecosystems, conserving biodiversity, and providing valuable information for ecological studies and conservation efforts.
  5. Question: How do you plan to contribute to the preparation of scientific reports on field or herbarium specimens? What methods will you employ to ensure the accuracy and completeness of these reports? Answer: To prepare scientific reports, I will carefully document field observations, collection details, and specimen data.
