BGCI > Plant search
Locate rare and threatened plant species in cultivation around the world using our unique PlantSearch database.
This database is compiled from lists of living collections submitted to BGCI by the world's botanic gardens. The database presently includes over 1 million records.
Information on threat status of each taxa is provided by a direct link to IUCN's 1997 and latest Red Lists. Further nomenclatural and bibliographic information is provided through the link to the TROPICOS database maintained by the Missouri Botanic Garden. Additional references are available in the Listing of Plants of the World section provided by our link to the Australian New Crops website.
The database is also linked to lists of medicinal plants, crop wild relatives and CITES listed plants.
