Sustainable Uses of Plants
Kew offers specialist consultancy services on a wide range of topics relating to the sustainable uses of plants.
Our teams of specialist systematic scientists can provide expert advice on the following plant and fungal groups:
- Alismatids & Lilioids
In addition we have teams of specialist ethno and economic botanists who can assist you in evaluating the economic uses of plants. We also design projects with overseas communities that take into account the recognition of traditional knowledge.
Kew is working towards finding solutions to issues involving economic plant groups in a changing world, facing challenges of land use and climate change. This is tackled using our extensive database systems on plant uses, plant properties and biological interactions. Therefore we can assist you in developing programmes relating to sustainable economic development using wild plants, close relatives of crop plants and under-utilised species.
