First Annual State of the World's Plants report published by Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew

26th May 2016

The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew has launched their first annual State of the World's Plants report which is now available online

The report addresses thirteen questions about our current knowledge on the State of the World’s Plants. The main findings not only illustrate the incredible amount of information that is already available about the world’s plants but also the significant knowledge gaps.

By synthesising our current understanding of the State of the World’s Plants, it is hoped the findings will galvanise the international scientific, conservation, business and governmental communities to take positive action to work together to fill the knowledge gaps highlighted and expand international collaboration, partnerships and frameworks for plant conservation and use.
