Conserving the vast diversity of plant life that has evolved since plants crept onto land over 450 million years ago is very important to us.
These are just some of the projects we are involved in
proteas with Altitude - a ongoing research project looking after the diversity of protea species that are found high in the mountains of South Africa.
The Menai Strait Whitebeam Project – Working in conjunction with the North Wales Wildlife Trust and the National Botanic Garden of Wales we are helping to look after and understand a species that evolved since the last ice age.
Floating Water Plantain – A threatened plant that grows on our doorstep, its also a early divergent lineage in a basal group of flowering plants that’s endemic to Europe.
Orites myrtoidea – A Endangered member of the Proteaceae from Chile.
Caer Ddôl Meadow Restoration – The restoration of a flood meadow on the shores of Llyn Padarn.
South East Australian Banksia Species – We hold the Plant Heritage National Collection of South East Australian Banksias.
Bryophytes – Wales is home to over 800 different species of Moss, Liverwort and Hornwort. We are doing our little bit to look after some of them.
