There's a line of poetry that could apply to the ecologist: "Splendor in the grass, glory in the flower."

You and your fellow ecologists will be able to find glory in plant life, splendor in the experimental fungal colony in a conga line of Petri dishes.

But maybe the rest of the world won't be able to see it quite like you do.

So, glory probably won't play a major role in your career ecosystem.
