Botanic Gardens Conservation International
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.

Most are available free for download; others can be ordered in hard copy for a small fee. Some of our publications are only available to members.

Our publications include the following:

BGjournal - The worldwide journal of botanic garden conservation.


Roots - The education review for botanic gardens, produced biannually and covering topics such as teacher training, interpretation, research and education for sustainability, art and technology.
