BGCI members receive many benefits. Our regular journals are sent to members and we offer discounts on BGCI congresses and occasional publications.

But much more important, although less directly tangible, are the benefits of being part of the world's largest plant conservation network. Chance meetings, contacts we offer, encouragement, advice and support - all this adds up to a valuable and unique service for anyone working in the conservation of living plants.
