The article presents brief information about various branches of botany. Cytology is the study of the plant cell. Cells are the smallest unit of structure in all living things. Histology is the study of various plant tissues and their cells. Physiology is the study of how plants produce and use nutrients. Pathology is the study of plant diseases. Ecology is the study of how plants are affected by their environment. Genetics is the study of the ways a plant transmits hereditary characteristics to its offspring.
