How to Hire a Freelance Botanist
A botanist, also known as a plant biologist, is a professional who dedicates his/her life to studying all forms of plants and fungi. They can investigate how human activity cause an impact on the environment, the systems that make plants grow and breed and the genetic composition of different species.
The knowledge provided by botany experts can be applied to the development of programs to protect the environment, to the improvement of plant growth, to the identification and extraction of plant products that have medicinal properties, to the classification of new species and much more.
Botanists can further specialize in plant genomics, plant cell biology, food science and plant biochemistry.
The study of life processes of plants can increase our understanding on plant systems, which can be translated into solving agricultural challenges, solving pollution problems and improving food production and supply. Plant-based medicine is another promising area in the management of chronic conditions such as cancer, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
What Does a Botanist Do?
Botanists usually work as researches and lecturers at educational institutions. Others work in zoos, greenhouses, botanical gardens or plant-related laboratories. Biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies can also employ botanists. Some choose to have field-related work.
The high demand for food production has a huge impact on the environment. Botany experts investigate the impact of human activities on crop production and natural ecosystems, which are essential for sustainability.
Legislation and policy making for protecting the environment can be another occupation for botanists.
When working in the field, botanists use different equipment to collect and process plants, as well as photography as a form of documentation. From desert to rain forest, from underwater to urban environments, outdoor botanists can work under different climate conditions.
In the laboratory setting, these professionals make use of several microscopic methods and techniques for staining and investigation.
Botanists tend to work in collaboration with agricultural scientists, ecologists, environmental scientists, microbiologists, viticulturists and toxicologists. Together, they can address complex challenges in our society, such as food supply, environmental issues and population growth.
