The course is designed to help you develop a deeper understanding of careers in the plant sciences so that you can better appreciate their importance in our lives, and see examples of professions available to those with a plant sciences background. Plants are not only an important part of our environment (farms, landscapes and natural areas), but they are also absolutely essential for our survival and the survival of all life on the planet. Among other things, they provide us with a wide variety of foods, medicines, fibers for clothing, materials to build our homes, as well as vistas for our aesthetic pleasure. They are the ultimate source of most of the fuels that we use to heat/cool our homes, cook our foods, light our streets, and run our engines.
