A standardized monitoring protocol is presented in this document to allow agency staff, land managers, farmers, and others to evaluate the performance of individual pollinator habitat plantings.
It is evident that species recovery is not well understood.
Forest resources face numerous threats that require costly management. Hence, there is an increasing need for data-informed strategies to guide conservation practices.
Temperature is universally important for organisms and the thermal environment of a diversity of organisms is changing rapidly because of global climate change.
Impacts of global climate change, habitat loss, and other environmental changes on the world's biota and peoples continue to increase, especially on islands and in high elevation areas.
As multidisciplinary institutions at the interface between people and plants, botanic gardens are prime centres for botanical research and plant conservation.
Global biodiversity, including the diversity of wild plants, is of inestimable ecological, economic, and cultural value.
Although only a minority of plant species have a specific human use, many more play important roles in natural ecosystems and the services they provide, and rare species are more likely to have unusual traits that could be useful in the future.
Ten years ago the Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria embarked on an ambitious project to collect, treat and distribute storm water from the catchment within and around the botanic garden.
To meet the goals of the Global Strategy for Plant Conservation, the plant conservation community can leverage their collections to build integrated plant conservation programs.
