Meet the science-based, horticultural plant risk analysis tool that is good for business and the environment.
Institutions struggle with how to bring technology into their garden experience. With the importance of wayfinding and interpretation, an interactive map can help to share their story and ensure an extraordinary experience. But what approach is best?
From Google analytics to CompStat, we live in an era of big data. It’s not the size of the data set that matters, though; it’s what you do with it.
A seemingly never-ending challenge for many botanic gardens today is to have sufficient time to record accurate information about their plant collection.
Public garden living collections are dynamic and often the best efforts of plant recorders cannot keep pace with the volume of new arrivals, transplants, propagation, phenology observations, and removals.
Botanical gardens and their living collections have unique but underutilized resources for plant biology research.
Digitization, integration, and optimization of collections data can pay dividends across the board from management efficiency to innovative research activity.
As climate change places continued pressure upon wild-plant populations, botanical gardens and arboreta become increasingly indispensable conservation agents.
What??? Can’t afford to fly the taxonomist 1,200 miles back to your garden 3-4 times/year to verify one genus?
How can your garden support plant conservation? Unsure where to start?
