For our February issue of SavePlants, we take a look at some of our imperiled plants that challenge our notion of what a "relationship" should be. Read on to learn about these plant relationships and enjoy the more tongue-in-cheek tone of this month's newsletter.
In this month’s issue of SavePlants, we highlight the tools and techniques that are on the cutting edge of plant conservation science, encapsulated and shared via the CPC guidelines. From cryopreservation to advanced genetics, plant conservation involves far more than collecting and growing out seeds. Read on to understand more about what it takes to Save Plants!
Welcome to the final issue of SavePlants for 2018. As we regularly do this time of year, we both reflect on the past 12 months and look forward to the New Year. This last year represents one of the most productive in recent CPC history, with a number of incredible milestones and essential accomplishments.
Today, plant conservationists have embraced technology to Save Plants in ways we never could before. Advances in science, communication and conservation application are all led by our ability to embrace and harness the potential of technology.
Our October 2018 newsletter features the stories of 3 CPC Board Trustees who also serve, or have served, as Botanical Garden Directors.
Our September 2018 newsletter closely examines the effects of fire, both negative and positive on plant life.
