In the Tropical Andes millions of people depend upon the use of wild and domesticated
biodiversity for their livelihoods, but the complex interactions between the
Plant breeding is crucial for improving agricultural crops for human use. However, an
urgent rethink is needed to ensure the next generation of plant breeders have the
Canada is home to about 5087 species of higher plants of which 25% were introduced to Canada either deliberately or by accident. The richness of botanical species is highest in the southern, more densely settled parts of the country.
The power of citizen science to contribute to both science and society is gaining increased recognition, particularly in physics and biology.
Supplemental lighting can enhance yield when sunlight is limited, as in winter. As the effect
of frequent cloudy or rainy days in other seasons on plant growth and yield remains unclear,
The American Public Gardens Association (the Association) and the United States Botanic Garden (USBG) set out to collaborate and conduct this study to understand the extent of urban agriculture program impacts.
Originating in Europe in the 16th century, botanic gardens are found in nearly every country in the world.
Crop wild relatives are potential sources of traits for crop improvement, especially for developing varieties tolerant to biotic and abiotic stresses. Wild food plants, on the other hand, constitute important components of the diets of many people.
Coastal Roots Farm (the Farm) envisions a world in which people in every community come together to grow and share healthy food, care for the land, help their neighbors, and strengthen the connections they have with each other.
The main objective of the“Adapting Agriculture to Climate Change” project is to collect and protect the genetic diversity of a portfolio of plants with the characteristics required for adapting the world’s most important food crops to climate change.
