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.

  • 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.
