Botany vs Plant biology

Hello to everyone!

I am trying to find a definition for the term Plant biology (or Biologie
vegetale in french). I want to know if this term is different from Botany. I
am working on an indexing vocabulary and have to decide whether Plant
biology will exist by itself as and indexing term in our thesaurus or if we
should rather use Botany as a prefered term for Plant biology. To do so I
have to define the term Plant biology.
Any advise?

Thanks in advance.
