    I was wondering what kind of jobs people who major in botany or horticulture do exactly. I've been in the construction and engineering industry for a long time and if I ever wanted to change fields it would be to plants but want to know what those jobs are. Anybody know? Thanks. Shauntell

    well, I work in nature conservation as an ecologist. friends work in the herbaria of botanic gardens doing more taxanomic stuff, or you could do research into any area of botany: taxonomy, genetics, biochemistry, evolution etc or then work in related fields such as teaching, biochemical industries, plant breeding, horticulture forestry etc.

    Hey thanks. Where could I find more info on what this stuff is. Just a local college. Maybe I'll call and harrass the local botany department head at the local university. Thanks. Shauntell
