An initial industrial flora: A framework for botanical research in cooperation with industry for biodiversity conservation

We partnered with various federal, state, and private interests to evaluate the floristic composition at the Garden City Terminal of the Port of Savannah, Georgia, USA. We conducted the following study to demonstrate the collaborative relationship-building between researchers and industry and to develop a framework for biodiversity conservation. In our study, we collected all reproductive
vascular plants in the secured areas of the Garden City Terminal during four major seasonal time points over two years.
