A two days field trip was organized on July 5 and 6, 2019 for the students of  second year M.Sc. Botany to Biligiriranga Hills (BR hills) as a part of practical syllabus in Angiosperm taxonomy , accompanied by the honorable Head of the Department , Fr Jobi Xavier and       Mr Joel  Jose. The entire trip was about identification and collection of different species plants from varied families and the preparation of herbarium. The students guided by the teachers and local guide were taken deep into the forest to keenly observe the surrounding vegetation, identify and collect some of the rare varieties and thereby were taught the preparation of herbarium. The students were immensely benefited by this field trip as the study of taxonomy requires observing the characters of different specimen to get a better understanding of varied families.
