About Department

BRIEF HISTORY OF THE DEPARTMENT OF BOTANY When the Institution came into being as Delta State University in 1992, Departments of Botany, Microbiology and Zoology were separately established. During the era of sole administration, the three Departments were merged into one as Department of Biological Sciences in 1997/98 Academic Session. In February 2001, the Department of Biological Sciences was partially demerged when a separate Department of Zoology was created, leaving Botany and Microbiology as one Department. It was finally demerged from the Department of Botany/Microbiology to the Department of Botany in 2007.
