Botany is the scientific study of plant life and development. Botany covers a wide range of scientific disciplines that study plants, algae, and fungi including: structure, growth, reproduction, metabolism, development, diseases, chemical properties, and evolutionary relationships between the different groups. Botany began with tribal efforts to identify edible, medicinal and poisonous plants, making botany one of the oldest sciences.

Specific fields in botany can include ethnobotany (the study of the relationship between plant and humanoid life) and agricultural engineering (the application of engineering science and technology to manage agriculture).
