Monocots 1: General, Alismatids and Lilioids
The Kew Monocot programme is subdivided into three cross-departmental teams:
- Monocots I: General, Alismatids and Lilioids
- Monocots II: Commelinids
- Monocots III: Orchids
The major objective for the entire Monocot programme is to maintain and develop Kew’s systematic and phylogenetic research and expertise so that we remain a world leader in monocot systematics. We also aim to develop expertise, information and products that are useful in conservation and sustainable development of monocots in their natural habitats.
