Life Sciences Department

The botany section of the Life Sciences Department aboard the USS Enterprise, 2266

The Life Sciences Department was a section aboard Constitution-class starships that was responsible for all biological study.

In 2265, Doctor Mark Piper was the head of the USS Enterprise's life sciences department. (TOS: "Where No Man Has Gone Before")

In 2267, Captain James T. Kirk asked both the medical and life sciences departments to investigate the Denevan neural parasite. (TOS: "Operation -- Annihilate!")

This would seem to suggest that the life sciences and medical departments could operate separately from one another.
In the final draft script of TOS: "Mudd's Women", Magda Kovacs was established as having spoken to a "chap in life sciences" (in the words of Harcourt Fenton Mudd) who had told her about the condition of three miners on Rigel XII.
In TOS: "The Man Trap", the botany section of the Enterprise's Life Sciences Department was represented with a redress of the set for the vessel's sickbay. (Star Trek Compendium, 4th ed., p. 36)
