4. destruction of forests where native people have lived for years and gained knowledge about various plants and species has resulted in disappearance of information.
5. greater demand and increased human population has lead to increased and unsustainable rate
6.when the students of today without any background and with most of them taking up the course without any other choice, approach this science, they experience difficulties in understanding and believing it.Today teachers are always important for internal assessment or viva.
