Conifers are commonly planted in North America to provide year-round screening, as windbreaks or as focal trees in the landscape.
The North American crop wild relatives (CWR) of lettuce (Lactuca L.) represent an underexplored
The Red List of US Oaks report details for the first time the distributions, population trends, and threats facing all 91 native oak species in the U.S.
Botanic gardens conserve plant diversity ex situ and can prevent extinction through integrated conservation action. Here we quantify how that diversity is conserved in ex situ collections across the world’s botanic gardens.
Oak decline is a slow-acting disease complex that involves the interaction of biotic and abiotic factors such as climate, site quality and advancing tree age.
Horticultural plants play various and critical roles for humans by providing fruits, vegetables, materials for beverages,and herbal medicines and by acting as ornamentals.
Crop wild relatives, the wild progenitors and closely related cousins of cultivated plant
species, are sources of valuable genetic resources for crop improvement. Persisting gaps
Urbanization is a large driver of biodiversity globally.
Interception of potential invasive species at ports-of-entry is essential for effective biosecurity
and biosurveillance programs. However, taxonomic assessment of the immature stages
