What is Botany?
Much of the earth is covered with plant life that gives us oxygen, food supplies, and many other necessities. This teeming greenery all over the globe carries an unimaginable variety of designs, colors, lifestyles, and uses, and the botanist studies all of those things. In this lesson, we will discuss the definition of botany, the history of botany as a science, and the practical applications of botanical knowledge.
Botany is the scientific study of plant life, including the life of some things, such as fungus, which aren’t really considered plants anymore. The structure, properties, life processes, classifications, diseases, and environmental impacts and interactions are all included in botanical science. Botany is a branch of biology, which is the study of living organisms
The History of Botany
Since plant life is so fundamental to human survival, people have been studying plant life from the beginning of recorded time. When people were looking to trees, bushes, and grasses for food, they began to notice where and when these food items would show up. They made the connection between water and plant life and noticed how soil differences controlled the growth of plants.
In A.D. 60, Greek physician Dioscorides wrote a general medical manual, called De Materia Medica, which became the medical guidebook in general practice for over 1500 years. Most of the medicines described in that work are botanical in nature and helped maintain the knowledge and use of non-food plants.Theophrastus, a Greek philosopher who lived roughly 2300 years ago, is called by many the father of botanical science. His writings on plant classification, patterns of growth, natural locations, and practical applications are considered by many, to be the most important writings on the subject to reach us from ancient times. It was in his day that people of science and thought began to realize the empirical (careful observation) and logical approach that can be taken in the pursuit of scientific knowledge. Much of his writing contained detailed instructions on how to cultivate and use a wide variety of plants, making his botanical science very practical.
Near the beginning of the Renaissance, Theophrastus’ writings were rediscovered and circulated, generating a new interest in the scientific study of plants themselves. Beginning in the 17th century, many scientists in the field of botany began to make remarkable discoveries in the history of the study of plants
