|MadSci Network: General Biology|
I am researching a career in Biology, specifically Field Biology if I can find enough information. I have a few questions, and I would appreciate any help. 1)How selective is field biology compared to other areas of biology? I have read that most biologists work as teachers and professors or work as assistants in labs, but I am interested in data collection and research outside the lab as well. Would it be more difficult to get a job if research is what I want to do? 2)Are there any specific things that I can do gain an "edge" to help with a career in field biology? 3)I am also very interested in working with animals. Is field biology involving animals (beyond using them as experimentation tools) the same as zoology? 4)Are there any other names for Field/research biology? 5)I intensely dislike dissection, but I can learn to live with it. Can you estimate the number that I will probably have to do?
