Botanic gardens play major roles in plant conservation globally.
Predicting the flowering times of angiosperm taxa is a goal of mounting importance in the face of future climate change, with applications not only in plant biology and ecology, but also horticulture, agriculture, and invasive species management.
A major challenge in articulating human dimensions of climate change lies in translating global climate forecasts into impact assessments that are intuitive to the public.
The impacts of climate change are already being felt in communities across the country.
More frequent and intense extreme weather and climate-related events, as well as changes
The below case studies were collected and shared in a September 2018 Newsletter from the Center for Plant Conservation.
The first two decades of the twenty-first century have seen a rapid rise in the mobilization of digital biodiversity data.
The National Tropical Botanical Garden has been collecting rare plant data in Hawai`i for over 40 years. When this information is paired with GIS technology, predictive indices can be created.
U.S. urban land increased from 2.6% (57.9 million acres) in 2000 to 3.0% (68.0 million acres) in 2010. States with the greatest amount of urban growth were in the South/Southeast (TX, FL, NC, GA and SC).
Viewers will learn about native vegetation’s applicability to a myriad of conservation practices beyond wildlife uses through an exploration of the supporting scientific research applied throughout the tall grass prairie and southeastern grasslands regi
Botanic gardens around the world maintain collections of living plants for science, conservation, education, beauty and more.
