Botanist Science Techniques This job does sound interesting but I wouldn't want
this job. I like writing more. I like the shows like Criminal minds. I still respect forensic botanists and I admire their skills that they play in cases and help solve them. Our thoughts I was interested in botany because I like plants.
Although I like the topic, I wouldn't want it to be my job. I strive to be a musician rather than hanging out with cool plants. Raymond's thoughts... Tu's Thoughts Cindy's thoughts... I became interested in botany every since my grandpa and I planted flowers together in our garden. As fun as botany sounds... I would rather pursue another career such as being a dermatologist. I will definitely keep gardening as a hobby, though. Many ways to identify a plant Spark Put plant/plant substance under microscope Botanist looks at cells for unique structure and characteristics. (Eg, big, long, squished) From any distinct patterns in the structure, botanist takes that into consideration Compares this to the database to see if anything matches from the plant's description Plant is identified If it is still unknown, the plant must relate to others in some way by sharing the same family, class, order, etc... Case of January 1935... Works Cited
