Careers

There will always be jobs for plant scientists because plants are so fundamental to life on earth. 

The world’s economies are highly dependent on plants and their associated habitats, not only for food production but also for timber, for the fibres and chemical compounds plants produce and for the ecological services they provide, such as removing CO2 from the atmosphere. 

Plant scientists are employed around the world in industry, governmental and non-governmental organisations that seek to understand and conserve the natural environment, and to educate people about it. 

Botany graduates are in high demand in industries such as biotechnology, horticulture, tourism and agriculture.
