Program description


Botany is the study of plants and their rela- tionship to human affairs. The science is fundamental to food, fiber and pharmaceutical production; to the management of landscapes for beauty, recreation, forest products and for- age; and to the protection of landscapes against pollution and other abuses. The botanist is concerned with the diversity and classification of plants and fungi, their structure at both the macroscopic and microscopic levels, and their physiology, ecology and genetics and evolutionary relationships.

Courses in botany have been developed to meet the needs of the following groups of students: those who desire a general knowledge of the subject for its cultural value; those spe- cializing in areas which require a background in plant biology; and those selecting botany or biology as a major.
