FATHER OF INDIAN PLANT ANATOMY

19 Comments

Prof. P. JAYARAMAN was born on 15.12.1936 in a village called Vettavalam in Thiruvannamalai District in Tamil Nadu. He had his M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Botany from Presidency College, Chennai. He was the last Ph.D. student of Dr. B.G.L. Swamy who is one of the eminent Professors of Plant Morphology and also a former Principal of Presidency College, Chennai. His area of specialization was Plant Anatomy. He studied and served in the Presidency College, Chennai.

He is one of the renowned teachers in the field of Plant Anatomy in India. He has guided more than 10 Ph.D. students directly and offered research expertise to more than 100 Ph.D. scholars indirectly. He retired from Service in 1995, but he has not retired from Science/scientific studies. Just after his retirement, he has established a Research Laboratory in Chennai viz., PLANT ANATOMY RESEARCH CENTRE (PARC), which is located at No. 4, 2nd Street, Sakthi Nagar, West Tambaram, Chennai – 600045. Phone No. 044-22263236, E-mail ID: .

Research Scholars, Students, Teachers, Scientists and others from different disciplines of Plant Sciences across the country visit his laboratory for identification, authentication, consultation and guidance, anatomical description of plant organs and also to seek his expert opinion before proceeding to any research in plant anatomy/medicinal plants. People also visit PARC for referring rare and valuable books, Ph.D. theses, Dissertations, Journals etc. In fact, PARC is a REFERENCE CENTRE for the Herbal Scientists and Plant Anatomists. He has a Repository of more than 500 Voucher slides in PARC.

He has attained 75 years in December 2010. He devoted two third of his life span (about 45 years) to study different plant groups anatomically and gained a wealth of knowledge in Plant Anatomy as well as in Medicinal Plants. I can proudly say that in India, no one has studied the plants anatomically, the way he has studied. He is a -LIVING ENCYCLOPEDIA OF PLANT ANATOMY’. There is a famous biblical scripture that -Man looks at the outward appearance, but God looks at the Heart. Yes, he looks at the -HEART, MIND and SOUL of PLANTS’, that is, the VASCULATURES (Vascular structures), which enables us to differentiate one species from the other anatomically.

He deserves to be designated as the -FATHER OF INDIAN PLANT ANATOMY’. In recognition of his untiring service and outstanding contribution to the field of Plant Anatomy, he may be decorated as the -FATHER OF INDIAN PLANT ANATOMY’. Let us all pray to Almighty to give him pink health, wealth and longevity to serve the scientific fraternity.
