The branch of forensics which deals with the relation of plants with legal matters and law is termed as Forensic Botany and it is used to investigate criminal activities. Of the total proportion science students, very few of them are professionally trained botanists. To be trained in the field of Forensic Botany, teachers who teach botany often take one or two courses in two- or four-year college programs as forensic botanists require basic knowledge of plants in relation with criminal activities. It is seen that most of the individuals even working in professional plant societies lack the required knowledge of plants especially how this can be related to crime investigation. Plant evidence is often ignored as attorneys and law enforcement professionals are informed about botany no more than a common man. Plants evidence is very important in terms of determining time and cause of death, time and place of crime, reasons of ill health, and verification and refusal of alibi.
