Supporting Plant Science


Supporting research in all areas of plant sciences is a key part of our remit as a University Botanic Garden. We welcome collaborative projects that would make use of our collection, landscape or horticultural expertise to develop a better understanding of any aspect of how plants work.
Please email us at enquiries@botanic.cam.ac.uk directing your enquiry for the attention of our Plant Records Officer, Pete Atkinson, or the Director, Beverley Glover, to develop a new project.
Research in plant science is conducted by Garden staff and colleagues from the wider University and beyond. We have particularly strong links with the University’s Department of Plant Sciences and with the Sainsbury Laboratory. Research summaries appear below.
