Complete and accurate plant records are a defining feature of arboreta and botanic gardens.
As multidisciplinary institutions at the interface between people and plants, botanic gardens are prime centres for botanical research and plant conservation.
This handbook provides guidelines for the maintenance of standardized plant records at Welkinweir.
Landscape Conservation Design brings people together around landscape-scale data in order to co-create strategies that conserve things we care about.
Remotely sensed data are valuable for monitoring, assessing, and managing impacts on arid and semi-arid lands caused by drought or other changes in the natural environment.
