fuller etymology[edit]

Botany (Greek Βοτάνη - grass, fodder; Medieval Latin botanicus – herb, plant)[Morton, Alan G. (1981). History of Botanical Science: An Account of the Development of Botany from Ancient Times to the Present Day. London: Academic Press. ISBN 0-12-508382-3. ] could be included. As so far botany jumps from the Greek to the English. Latin was the langauage of science (and maybe German and French too!) and these informed the modern English - which is what we should show here. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 91.159.15.235 (talk) 17:00, 2 January 2015 (UTC)

plant scientists[edit]

Botany is a large field that has many areas in which to specialise ,including the chemical properties of different plants and how these are beneficial to human beings. PLANTS ARE TESTED TO SEE WHETHER THEY ARE POISONOUS OR EDIBLE AND TO FIND OUT WHETHER THEY HAVE MEDICINAL PROPERTIES Charmaine Loy (talk) 11:17, 4 September 2016 (UTC)
