Welcome to Crochet For Life, here you learn not only crochet, but thousands of things that will help you! Botany (from the Greek botánē, meaning plant) is an area of Biology dedicated to the study of plants. Traditionally, other organisms are studied in Botany, such as algae, fungi and cyanobacteria. These organisms, however, are not treated like plants and are included only by tradition of being often considered part of the botany curriculum. Plants are multicellular living beings, eukaryotic and autotrophic (with the exception of parasitic plants) essential for humans and other organisms, playing an economic as well as an ecological role. Didactically, plants are classified into four groups: bryophytes, pteridophytes, gymnosperms and angiosperms. In most plants, we find three basic plant organs: root, stem and leaves. Seeds are present in gymnosperms and angiosperms, while flowers and fruits are only present in angiosperms.
Areas of study in Botany – As said, Botany is an area of Biology dedicated to the study of plants, but it also includes other living organisms that are traditionally studied by botanists, such as fungi and algae. Botany is an extremely important area, since plants are used in different ways by human beings and are fundamental for the maintenance of life as we know it today. When we talk about plants, we immediately remember that they are a source of food for us, human beings, and also for other animals, which often serve as food for us. We must also not forget that they provide shelter for several species, help maintain the climate, ensure soil stabilization and that, through the photosynthesis process, they are responsible for releasing oxygen, which we use for breathing. Economically, the plants are important for providing wood, fibers for making clothes, raw material for making paper and important components for the manufacture of cosmetics and medicines used in the treatment of various diseases. Plants are also used for ornamentation, being used in gardens and parks.
Origin of the Blanket: Even before man told his story through figures painted on the walls of caves, he had already discovered that the fleece (fur) of the sheep was softer, warmer and more comfortable than the skins of other animals. This discovery, made thousands of years ago, has proven to be one of the greatest contributions to human progress and comfort of all these centuries. Wool gave the primitive hunter warm clothing and protection, which made him extend to areas of extreme climates. The sheep was one of the first animals to be domesticated, and so the hunter became a shepherd of flocks, finding in him everything he needed for his survival at that time. These were the first long steps taken by man towards civilization. This hunter, or more likely his wife, learned to spin and weave wool, producing cloth and clothing, first with his fingers and later with spinning wheels and looms.
The versatility and value of wool were highly praised. Wool clothing was already used in Babylon in 4,000 BC. Inscriptions from that period indicate that negotiations for wool had already begun. It then appeared as one of the first goods, with sufficient value to make commercialization international. Asian nomadic horsemen wore handmade woolen trousers and coats during their successive invasions of the east during the second millennium BC These barbarian peoples were large-scale sheep breeders and brought with them woolen clothing, rugs and blankets, the which were used in insulating tent floors and walls. Because blankets and clothes are highly appreciated in the civilized world, they became part of it. During the following centuries, wool, woolen fabrics, and the art of weaving were disseminated across the Mediterranean through Phoenician merchants, reaching England and Spain. Later, the wool trade would help finance the explorations and expeditions of Christopher Columbus and the conquerors.
