THE FIELDS OF BOTANY
Because the field is so broad, there are many kinds of plant biologists.
Ecological Botanists: Study interactions of plants with other organisms and the environment. Field botanists search to find new species or do experiments to discover how plants grow under different conditions. Some botanists study the structure of plants. They may work in the field, concentrating on the pattern of the whole plant. Others use microscopes to study the most detailed fine structure of individual cells.
