And in addition, the plants are playing extremely importance role in the existing and perishing of the earth.
Where is oxygen from? Where is energy to maintain the life cycle on the earth from? The answer for all is plants. In fact, the plant has special function that no other organism on the earth has, that is generating the oxygen from the organics synthesis with the gathered energy from the sunshine, so plant is playing as motive force for all chains such as all organisms and living activities on the earth. And in addition, with the diversity in all aspects, the plant world has been supporting many benefits for particular human life and all organisms on the earth in general.

However, it has been not any wide and depth program or project of the specific application of Vietnam’s total resources for the life. Special in the background of global integrating and modern informatics technology, it is more and more insufficiently caring of our plant resources by the modern people.
Botany Vietnam Group (BVN Group) has been established with the functions of studying and popularizing the specific application of the plant resources of Vietnam for the life. The firstly website of group located address http://www.botanyvn.com with the function of supporting and popularizing the botanical achievements and the scientific and industrial applications that support for the productive and living of personal Vietnamese population and human in general.
