Seed transfer guidelines and zones are used to manage the movement of plant materials, but by the end of the century many landscapes across the globe will have climates that are incompatible with current vegetation.
Native plant communities are key to ecosystem health, resiliency, and productivity.
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.
This presentation from the 2018 Small Gardens Symposium provides information on how to track living collections data and different record keeping forms and database options.
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.
This publication reviews the accession data quality and record keeping at 21 botanic gardens, 35 gardens with National Council for the Conservation of Plants and Gardens (NCCPG) collections, and eight other significant gardens in the
Despite the severe threats to plant habitats and high levels of extinction risk for plant species in many parts of the world, plant conservation priorities are often poorly represented in national and global frameworks because of a lack of data in an ac
The impacts from climate change are increasing the possibility of vulnerable coastal species and habitats crossing critical thresholds that could spur rapid and possibly irreversible changes.
