Missouri Botanical Garden

Our interactions and activities in the Framework: 

The Missouri Botanical Garden is a partner in the Central Hardwoods Climate Change Response Framework project. The Garden hosted the June 26-28 Central Hardwoods Expert Panel Workshop at its Monsanto Center. Garden scientists Matthew Albrecht and Adam Smith participated in the workshop and presented their research on the vulnerability of rare plant species to climate change. This research focuses on flora from the Missouri Ozarks and is an important step in developing adaptive strategies to conserve these species.

Our broader climate change activities and perspectives: 

Researchers at the Missouri Botanical Garden are involved in a number of projects examining the effects of climate change on plant species both locally and internationally. A summary of current climate change projects can be found here.
