Plant Science BulletinPlant Science BulletinPlant Science BulletinCareers in Botany

First published in the 1960s, and now in its fourth revision, the Careers in Botany brochure remains one of the most widely used references for people exploring career opportunities in the plant sciences. This is a small publication outlining the nature of various career opportunities in the botanical disciplines. An online version of the brochure is available through the following link "Careers in Botany" .

One of the exciting aspects in regards to careers in the plant sciences is the variety opportunities and areas of specialization from which you can choose (See the "Areas of Specialization in Botany" page). This diversity allows people with different backgrounds, aptitudes, and interests to find satisfying careers in plant biology. More than many other scientific fields, botany continues to provide opportunities for women as well as men. What could be more rewarding than having the option to pursue a career in a field you love? Possibly choosing one where you know your work is making a difference in the world around you. If you are serious about science, please explore the Careers in Botany online.
