Plants and animals are mostly composed of carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, and nitrogen. These chemicals – and how they are put together – underlie everything around us. That’s why chemistry is such a valuable tool for agricultural, environmental and food scientists. When growing plants and animals, you’re working with chemistry and chemical bonds.
