Botanists use water all the time while doing their job. They study plants and how they grow. Some of these plants include algae, ferns, mosses, fungi, and flowering plants. Botanists use water to keep the plants alive and healthy, as well as getting them to grow. They also study the effects of pollution on plants, such as acid rain. Botanists could also study water pollution and the environment. Many botanists work on trying to stop pollution in the water. Another place botanists might work could be a zoo. In the zoo they would focus on studying and watering the plants or feeding the animals and giving them water. They would also need to give the animals water to play and bathe in. Botanists use tissue culture to make new plants from a single cell. They need to grow the plants with lots of water to keep them healthy so they will grow. Other botanists use biotechnology to develop new or improved plants. They need to use water to give the plants nutrients while they are developing and improving. Water is so important and we use it every day, just like botanists!
