"Conservation Horticulture in the 21st Century" by Dylan Hanon Curator for the Huntington Botanical Garden
How do we value plants for the purpose of conservation with the resources available. How are these plants best kept in cultivation? With the botanical riches in gardens and collections today it is more important than ever to develop ways to ensure their widespread use and appreciation. This talk will cover both philosophical and practical considerations of plants using case histories of plants such as Osa pulchra, Brighamia insignis, Dorstenia gigas
