State of the World's Plants

Annual, cutting-edge horizon scan of global plant status

State of the World's Plants Report

Kew’s State of the World’s Plants report provides, for the first time, a baseline assessment of our current knowledge of the diversity of plants on earth, the global threats that plants face, and the policies dealing with them. Launched in conjunction with a new website and an international scientific symposium, Kew’s State of the World’s Plants sets an important standard from which we can annually track trends in global plant status.
