Kew Royal Botanic Garden

A global resource for plant and fungal knowledge

Our priorities include:

  1.  To document and conduct research into global plant and fungal diversity and its uses for humanity.
  2.  To curate and provide data-rich evidence from Kew’s unrivalled collections as a global asset for scientific research.
  3.  To disseminate our scientific knowledge of plants and fungi, maximising its impact in science, education, conservation policy and management.

We have over six research departments supported by the Office of the Science Directorate


We aim to make our scientific resources a global asset, bringing benefits to science, conservation policy and education worldwide.
