Welcome to the blog for Plants for the Planet by BGCI. We’ll be maintaing this blog during the international meeting to renew and strengthen the Global Strategy for Plant Conservation (GSPC) in Nagoya, Japan (18 – 29 October 2010).
Plants matter to us: imagine a world without colour – imagine a world without plants! Plants colour our window boxes, gardens and natural landscapes. They provide us with inspiration and pleasure. Much more than this they provide our food, medicines, timber and a whole host of natural resources. They provide the oxygen in the air that we breathe and absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, helping to regulate the global climate.
In the International Year of Biodiversity please support the Global Strategy for Plant Conservation .
Join the Plants for the Planet pledge today.
