Botanist

How can I become a Botanist?

Because this is a scientific discipline and the work is all research based, a PhD is usually required to hold a formal botanist position. In addition, botanists tend to specialize in a particular field of botany, and focusing one's graduate studies and gaining hands-on experience in that field (via internships and/or postdoctoral studies) is also crucial to obtaining job opportunities. Finally, many botanist are a part of a university or college, which requires a PhD to teach.

What are the average job duties of a Botanist?

Botanists are scientists that study plants of all types. This does include fungi, bacteria (sometimes), lichens, and some protists, although none of these are not technically plants. This probably comes from the historical scope of botany, which was the study of all organisms not historically thought to be an animal.

Botanists are a type of biologist and work mainly at higher education institutions, private research laboratories, and governmental agencies. Botanical research can lead to discoveries and insights that can improve our understanding of the environment and how to care for it, about the uses of certain plants, the discovery of new drugs, increasing crop productivity, etc. Within botany (aka phytology, or plant biology), there are multiple specializations, and botanists tend to become highly focused in their studies and expertise, concentrating on one particular environment type or group of plants or even a particular process that happens within plants.

Botanists are differentiated from horticulturalist, because horticulture is primarily the art and science of gardening, and sometimes, food production. Botany is by nature much more broad and less of an applied discipline as a purer science.

Botanists spend time both inside the lab and out in the field. If they work at a higher learning institution, they may also teach. In the field they may work alone or in teams, and may travel extensively in the course of their research.

What skills and interests should I have to become a Botanist?

An analytical mindset is important, working with large amounts of data. Botanist sometimes work alone or in teams, the latter of which necessitates good communication skills. Because they produce findings and presentations, both oral and written communication skills are important. Also, if they have teaching responsibilities, teaching skills and oversight of students is also important.

What can I expect to earn as a professional Botanist?

In 2007, botanists and other similar biologists made between $36,000 - $98,000+ a year. These salaries vary widely depending upon experience, specific areas of botany, and location.
