The opportunities for majors in Plant Science are as varied as they are limitless and the demand for graduates is steadily increasing. A specialization in Greenhouse and Landscape Nurseries equips you to use Florida-friendly plants and create landscapes that attract wildlife; suggest flowers, trees and shrubs that raise property values, calm down traffic and people, and abate noise and light pollution; grow new plants and help us appreciate the outdoors more. You can develop computerized irrigation systems; introduce best management practices for nursery producers to implement; or make trees and woody plants grow faster to help combat global warming.
