Missouri Botanical Garden Spring Bulletin

Science and conservation

Garden scientists in 36 nations around the globe discover over 200 new plants per year! Every single one – from the tiniest orchid to the largest tree – helps fill gaps in our knowledge about the history of the earth and the biology of its organisms. Once scientifically documented, plants can be analyzed for medicinal properties and included in conservation plans.
