Career as a Botanist
Botanists are biologists who specialize in the study of plants. Botany is a vast subject in which they work. It includes the investigation of much greater than 300,000 plant species, spanning from ground-hugging orchids to massive redwood trees. Furthermore, there are several approaches to the investigation of animals and plants. Botanists generally focus on one species of plant or set of plants or one method of studying plants. Most botanists study characteristics that are common to all species of plants. Plant taxonomists, for example, are experts in identifying and categorizing species. They occasionally go into uncharted territory in search of new plant species. Plant physiologists are specialists in plant life processes. They research how plants reproduce, develop, and generate food. The effects of temperatures, moisture, sunlight, and various environmental elements on plant biological functions are of interest to plant epidemiologists. Botanists that specialize in economic botany look to find and create plants that may be marketed as food, medicines, textiles, or other valuable products. Botanists come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Some plant biotechnology employees in related fields specialize in putting academic researchers' discoveries into practice. Agriculture, preservation, ecology, horticultural, and fertilizer application are some of the sectors in which they operate.
