Welcome To Botany Department
Botany is the scientific study of plants. "Plants," to most people, mean a wide range of living organisms from the smallest bacteria to the largest living things - the giant sequoia trees. By this definition plants include algae, fungi, lichens, mosses, ferns, conifers and flowering plants. One of the best things about plant science is the number of different specialties 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.
