Hi, I am new to this forum and I am really interested in Botany. I really wanna learn about plants but don't know where to start. My high school doesn't offer any courses on anything plant related. So I was wondering if anyone could give me pointers on where to start?

@LotsToLearn,
I bet they do offer courses that will benefit your interest in botany. Do they offer courses in chemistry, science, biology, oceanography, or nutrition?

Meanwhile, read these for further options:

@Butrflynet,
Thank you, this will help me out but there are not alot of jobs or fields like this in Texas, but since I might be moving to Colorado soon there might be more jobs out there involving plants.

Depends on what part you want to follow, research, general knowledge, or participation?

“What we think, or what we know, or what we believe is, in the end, of little consequence. The only consequence is WHAT WE DO.” John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)

@LotsToLearn,
Do you have a good library anywhere near you? Librarians are often very good at giving suggestions about finding out about good source books, and lately, websites.

@Rickoshay75,
What do you mean by general knowledge, research, and participation? Doesn't a botanical scientist cover all of that? Or do I need to pick a certain area?

@ossobuco,
My school does but its a very small library and mostly filled with fiction and outdated titles, but I will check to see if there is any books involving plants there tomorrow.

@LotsToLearn,
Yeah, I like it, too. I've uploaded a few dozen spottings to it. It has taught me a LOT about plant and animal species. Very Happy

Today, most botanical scientists are trained very heavily in molecular biology and of course, molecular genetics. Both topics are important to the State of Texas and Texas Universities most likely offer PhDs in the subjects.

Stay in Texas where molecular biology and genetics are very exciting and very important.
