Botanic Gardens Conservation International (BGCI) published a report in 2008; 'Plants and climate change: which future?' which details how plants and climate change are intimately connected, and explains why it is crucially important for us to act now to save the world’s plants.

The report provides referenced information and case studies that: Examine the effects of climate change on plants (from individual cellular responses to entire ecosystem changes), Describe how the impact of climate change on plants will affect the animals and humans who depend upon them, Explain which species are most at risk of extinction., Recommend actions needed to ensure a future for the world’s plants.
