Conservation at Oxford Botanic Garden and Arboretum
We work with partners across the globe to conserve rare plants. We develop ex situ conservation collections from biodiversity hotspots – areas with high plant species richness, and surveys to measure the diversity of these regions. Our work collectively focuses on the Mediterranean Basin and Canary Island Archipelago, and the Ethiopian and Japanese floristic regions. We also work with local conservation groups on rare plants around Oxfordshire, and on parasitic plants – a group neglected from conservation elsewhere.
