Plant (Phyto) Chemistry can be considered a sub-field of Botany and Chemistry.
Pharmacology is the study of drugs, both chemical and natural – their composition (chemical constituents), uses, dosages, interactions, effects and how they work in the body.
We also cover Pharmacognosy, which is the branch of pharmacology that deals with drugs in their crude or natural state- specifically medicinal herbs.
