BGCI provides a global voice for all botanic gardens, championing and celebrating their inspiring work. We are the world's largest plant conservation network, open to all. Join us in helping to save the world's threatened plants.
One of BGCI's major roles is as a publisher of guidance and policy information for and about plant conservation. Some of our publications are only available to members; others can be ordered or downloaded free from our website.
This manual is the second in a series of botanic garden guides produced by BGCI (see also CITES manuals). Many aspects of the Convention on Biological Diversity are relevant to the work of botanic gardens and this aims to 'de-mystify' and explain the framework.
