Botanist

Tools of the Trade

Hatchet (good to work out aggression and chopping plant life)

Hand lens (great for inspecting flowers, hairs, etc.)

Hori-hori (it's a digging tool, like a trowel, yes it is)

Pruner (it snips off stuff)

Collecting bags (it's for plants, folks)

Notebook and pencil (for recording plant facts)

Plant press (pressing plants to preserve them is the botanical way)

Mounting cards (gotta show the pressed dead plants somewhere, somehow)

Microscope (some plants are really tiny)
