To Obtain More Information

Most plant scientists are very willing to talk about their careers. Schedule appointments to visit with several botanists at a nearby college or university. Ask them about the nature of their positions and about the specific interests they have in plant biology. You can also get additional information about botany as a discipline and as a career from the following:
