Climate Change and Plants: Ensuring our Future Prosperity

Plants face many threats but climate change is probably the single greatest threat to plant diversity.

Recent predictions have suggested that almost half of today's known plant species could be threatened by changes in climate. Since plants maintain ecosystems for all life on the planet, action is needed now to help mitigate the threat and to enable adaptation to changes in climate.

BGCI is launching a new global programme to help do just that, harnessing the skills and expertise in botanic gardens worldwide to make a real difference. Your organisation can become a partner of choose to select a specific element related to your interests. We welcome the opportunity to discuss 'climate change and plants' with you in more detail.
