Botany is the scientific study of plant life.
Virtually all of the food we eat comes from plants, either directly from staple foods and other fruit and vegetables, or indirectly through livestock, which rely on plants for fodder.
In other words, plants are at the base of nearly all food chains, or what ecologists call the first trophic level.
