The study of plants, including their taxonomy, structure and qualities, as well as biochemical processes, the research of plant diseases and the impact of the environment on plant growth, are the focus of the biological field known as plant science. Ayurveda, Pharmacy, Biotechnology, Microbiology, Biochemistry, Environmental Science, Biophysics, Agriculture, horticulture and forestry are examples of applied sciences built on the concepts and discoveries of Plant Sciences. One of the most fascinating and significant groupings of living things on Earth is the plant kingdom. They supply food, influence our environment, and act as a conduit for energy into the biosphere. New instruments and approaches were developed to aid in the study of the finer structure of various plants and their components. The use of a microscope not only made visible a vast array of tiny species, but also the tiniest intricacies of their interior architecture. Numerous novel instruments and methods have been invented throughout the history of biology, including microscopy, histochemistry, electrophoretic techniques, spectroscopic techniques, centrifugation techniques, and chromatography techniques, among others.
