Cynthia Stokes Brown (1) rightly states that before agriculture was invented, the early humans were hunter and foragers. They gathered food from natural environment. Earlier species of Homo genus – Homo sapience had knowledge of plant science for food, shelters, medicines, transportation tools and other tools. Hunting and plant or plant parts remained a way of life for 7lakhs years to 2 lakhs years ago
Lakhs of Experiments and lakhs of Death before agriculture came in Existence
It is better to make presumption for knowing the plant knowledge gathered by early humans.
Dependence of Animal Instinct
Initially till human got proper experiences and language for communication, the humans might have relied on natural instincts .Early Homo sapiens or earlier species of Homo genus might have identified plants as normal vegetarian animals do today. This identifying instinct might have been in nature or god gifted. There might be animal instinct in early human beings identifying poisonous or non-poisonous plants by smell, sight or other means. The humans might have done thousands of experiences for knowing about uses of plants and uses of parts of plants. Sight might have helped for knowing the size and uses but tasting food would be at later stages. In experimenting tasting or touching different plants might have killed thousands of human beings.
Slowly humans got knowledge of plants their uses, plant parts useful for food, shelters, medicines, transport or career etc.
By instinct or experimenting, humans might have used pla parts for resting etc too
