Systematics is the science devoted to the discovery, description, and classification of the earth's biological diversity. The need for an accurate and comprehensive knowledge of biological diversity is now recognized by a broad array of interests in the public and private sectors.

Plants and fungi are the focus of current initiatives in the conservation of endangered species, the restoration of native ecosystems, and the control of invasive weeds. In these and other endeavors, the accurate identification of plants and fungi plays a pivotal role. Oregon State University's Professional Science Master's Degree in Applied Systematics is designed to provide students with the tools and experience needed to become proficient in this area.
