Mobile Museum: economic botany in circulation

Starting in 1847, Kew’s Museum of Economic Botany received and re-circulated plant raw materials and artefacts from all over the world. This collaboration with Royal Holloway, University of London, seeks to map these flows, discovering and forging global connections with museums worldwide.

Tropical Important Plant Areas in the British Virgin Islands (BVI TIPAs)

Kew is working in partnership with The National Parks Trust of the Virgin Islands (NPTVI) on a two-year project to identify and map TIPAs in BVI. Scientifically robust data from field surveys and herbarium specimens are being used to identify populations of the most threatened plant species, areas of exceptional botanical richness and threatened habitats in BVI.
