The article enlists a detailed study about the future opportunities if one decides to take Botany as their graduation and post-graduation studies.

There are plenty of options (career wise) in botany, including soil and plant scientist, biophysicist and biochemist, biological technician, environmental scientist and specialist, mycologist, plant breeder and horticulturist. A bachelor's degree can help you to get started in this field, a master's degree or doctorate is generally needed to advance. A degree in Botany greatly deals with the biology of fossils and living plants along with their relationship with the environment. One can also get specializations in areas such as the taxonomy, physiology and anatomy of plants and their processes. A bachelor's degree is required for career entry, but advanced degree options are often required for teaching or research positions.

Career Options: There are several common career options for botany graduates. Though these all fall under the larger botany umbrella, many of these scientific careers blend with one another in areas of study or emphasis. In addition to the following positions, research and teaching positions are common occupations for graduates of advanced botany degree programs. Taxonomist Taxonomists organize species of plants into categories, after studying individual plants and grouping their species together based on similarities. A lot of species that they identify are representative of the established evolutionary relationships of plant groups. Agronomist These are soil and plant scientists who work to improve the yield of field crops like grains and cotton. They develop processes that assist farmers in growing more crops and preventing disease in them. Ecologist These scientists study plants interactions with the environment and other organisms. They study the ecosystems of plants with the goal of protecting them and solving environmental issues. Mycologist Traditionally, mycologists study fungi and how these damaging organisms injure plant life. Mycologists may also be grouped as a type of microbiologist owing to their study of bacteria and algae as they relate to microorganisms. Plant Breeder Plant breeders use traditional hybridizing

Horticulturist These individuals cultivate, grow and care for plants, ranging from fruits to flowers. They can work in areas such as gardens, nurseries or tree orchards. Biophysicist Biophysicists study the physical and mechanical energy of cells and living organisms. Within plants, they can determine how applicable medicine cures plant disease
