The Role of Gardens in Integrated Conservation Practice: The Case of Conserving Quercus Brandegeei in Baja California Sur, Mexico
Digitization StatusBorn digital
AbstractGardens and horticulturists play an increasingly important role in plant conservation, both in situ and ex situ. Integrated research and conservation of species intends to work across fields to connect science to conservation practice by engaging actors from different sectors, including gardens. The case of integrated conservation of Quercus brandegeei, a microendemic oak species in Baja California Sur, Mexico, is presented as an example of a collaboration between gardens and academic researchers to create a species-specific conservation plan that incorporates horticultural knowledge.
