You have probably heard the term “ecology” thrown around a lot, but do you know what an ecologist does? An ecologist studies whole organisms (that is, rather than what goes on inside an organism), and their environment. Typically an ecologist spends a lot of time out of doors.

Do you think you might want to study ecology? Take a look at this well-written page about HOW DO YOU BECOME AN ECOLOGIST? by Whit Gibbons at the University of Georgia.

You might want to visit the Ecological Society of America website for more career profiles, and more about ecology as a career, as well.
