From the Botanical Society of America, this concise online brochure provides basic career information for aspiring botanists. The opening sections of the brochure address big picture issues like: What is Botany?; Botany and Society; Areas of Specialization; and Why Choose a Career in Botany? The Areas of Specialization section features a helpful chart mapping out a wide variety of career foci including cytology, morphology, plant pathology, bryology, horticulture, education, and more. Other sections have a more practical focus and address issues regarding salaries and job availability, opportunities (with a link to a botanical/plant science job board), and the required steps to a career in botany. The site also contains resource links for more information, and brief reflections from three professional botanists in different fields.
