Plants have intrigued people for thousands of years. They provide aesthetic beauty as well as materials for our basic needs. Today our world presents new and complex problems that were never dreamed of a century ago. For instance, increasing human population is linked to environmental problems of gigantic proportion.
One of the best things about plant science is the number of different specialities and career opportunities from which you can choose. This diversity allows people, with different backgrounds, aptitudes and interests, to find satisfying careers in plant biology.
Among the careers available to a person who enjoys outdoors are positions as an ecologist, taxonomist, conservationist, forester, or plant explorer. His work may take him to exotic lands. It may allow him to live and work outdoors. A person with a mathematical background might find biophysics, developmental botany, genetics, modelling, or systems ecology to be exciting fields. Someone with an interest in chemistry might become a plant physiologist, plant biochemist, molecular biologist, or chemotaxonomist. Many people do not realize that most of the basic biological processes are the same in both plants and animals. Plants, however, are easier to grow and manipulate.
