How prepared is the U.S. to meet future botanical challenges?

The Chicago Botanic Garden and Botanic Gardens Conservation International 's U.S. office are working with partners across the country to assess current and future botanical capacity in the United States. The aim of this grant-funded project is to understand the resources we currently have to conserve and manage native plant species and habitat, identify gaps in capacity and highlight opportunities to fill them in the future. A summary report will be released in mid-2010 and freely available from this website.

If you are involved in plant science research, education or natural resource management in the United States, here is the Survey.
