Abstract

So why do people study botany? Among other things, plants are important bio-markers of climate and ecological changes in the environment; they contain compounds which could be useful in the treatment of hard-to-treat diseases; and they are very important to the economy of this country. The Botany Department at Otago was the first of its kind in New Zealand and is the ‘last one standing’ in all universities throughout the country.
