Science

Botanic gardens are built on a foundation of scientific inquiry. From investigating and conserving plants in the wild to horticultural research, science is integral to all activities at the Gardens.

  • The Pyramid showcases the Gardens’ research activities and invites the visitor to see the world of plants through a scientific lens.

  • We strive to connect people with plants by promoting conservation and understanding of global and local biodiversity through research, collection, outreach and documentation of living and preserved flora. Learn about our research projects, scientists, herbaria and more.

  • Horticultural research seeks to improve the quality, sustainability and aesthetics of designed landscapes with the aim of using plants to improve the world around us.
