From the American Public Gardens Association Plant Collections Management Symposium. Thursday, October 18, 2018 from Vancouver, Canada.
Intensively managed landscapes, like those found in many public gardens, attempt to mitigate the impact of significant weather events through irrigation, improving soil characteristics, and mulching.
The below case studies were collected and shared in a September 2018 Newsletter from the Center for Plant Conservation.
Functional traits are increasingly used to understand the ecology of plants and to predict their responses to global changes. Unfortunately, trait data are unavailable for the majority of plant species.
MIssouri experienced winter droughts in 2013, 2014, 2017, and 2018 which potentially impacted the native plants and their pollination systems at Shaw Nature Reserve.
Native pollinating bees are a vital component of the biologically diverse plant and animal community which is critical to healthy, ecologically functional range landscapes. There are more than 20,000 species of bees world-wide.
Join the conversation to learn the conservation status of North America's bumble bees (including the federally endangered rusty patched bumble bee, Bombus affinis), threats they face, and conservation measures known to support healthy bee communities.
“Which plants should I grow, and how many?” The IMLS National Leadership Project, Safeguarding our Tree Collections, seeks to answer this fundamental question.
Botanic gardens are living museums, offering opportunities for conservation and research as well as education, experience, and enjoyment through their plant collections.
The tenth and first installment of 2018 in the Eastern Seed Zone Forum's online lecture and discussion series aimed at providing both information about the creation of seed zones in general and a forum in which professionals, experts, and interested par
