The whole creation responds to praise.

We seek your views and comments on the contents of this website, which may please be sent to The Secretary, ISEB.

I am pleased to know that the Second International Conference on Plants & Environmental Pollution (ICPEP-2) is being organized in Lucknow by the International Society of Environmental Botanists and National Botanical Research Institute, Lucknow. Our dependence on plants for day-to-day requirements is well known. We value plants as providers of all our food materials, most of our medicines, variety of chemical substances that we use. It is important that the Conference throws more light on certain properties of plants, which have not attracted enough attention so far. We observe that there are some plants, which vanish if the air is polluted.

I have no doubt that the Conference will provide new perspectives for advancement of science and in human welfare.
