ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is investigate to compare with knowledge classification and library classification system of botany. First, the knowledge field of botany is mainly classified in morphology, physiology, ecology, taxonomy, genetics, evolution and others by the study object of plants. Second, the division of plants is treated in the field of taxonomy, that is, a lower subdivision study of botany, and Engler's classification is still prevalent in the taxonomy. Third, in library classification, KDC, NDC, UDC and CC adopted the Engler's classification, but DDC and LCC was taken of the Bentham & Hooker's classification. In the Engler's classification, plants are arranged by evolution's order, from lower vegetation to higher vegetation, but Bentham & Hooker's classification is arranged in the reverse order. Forth, it is desirable that every plants(482-489) of KDC' botany are subdivided by the attribute or structure of plants being treated in the general botany as if they are subdivided in the DDC or CC.
