The Cambridge University Botanic Garden is one of the largest University-owned botanic gardens in the world. The CUBG maintains a living collection of over 14,000 accessions and 8 000 plant species, sourced from over 141 countries, and distributed across a 40-acre landscape. Our diversity is arranged in discrete displays to represent particular floras and themes and preserve over 150 species threatened with extinction. We are custodian to 9 National Plant Collections, whose designations recognize assemblages of exceptional science or heritage value. Our Cory Library holds 7827 volumes with many precious books of rare provenance, some annotated by Charles Darwin, and over 1200 manuscripts and objects. Our herbarium collection of dried plants totals 16,000 accessions and forms a permanent record of the plants that have been grown at CUBG since its inception in 1762. Our leading collections are curated to the highest standards and used extensively by colleagues in external HE institutions for research, scholarship and teaching.
