Plant Science



Plants are such an essential part of our lives that we often take for granted how gardens, parks, and wilderness areas enhance our lives, and that plants supply us with most of the food we eat; fibre for clothing; wood for furniture, shelter and fuel; paper for books; spices for flavour; drugs for medicines; even the oxygen we breathe.  

Studying Plant Science at UTAS involves utilising our unique location and proximity to our living laboratory; the unique biota in the Tasmanian wilderness.
