-Senebier can be considered as the founder of a new discipline, plant physiology, which he defined in 1791 in the volume Forêts et Bois of the Encyclopédie méthodique as the science of the exchange of substances between plants and their environment, which includes the analysis of the composition of plant substances. This experimental science, which opposes descriptive natural history, is based on chemistry.
