Plant journeys

Plant science and conservation come together at the Australian PlantBank.

Scientists here at the Australian PlantBank seek to answer vital questions:

  • How do plants grow and evolve?
  • What new uses for Australian native plants are yet to be discovered?
  • How can we use plants more sustainably in horticulture and agriculture?
  • With so many ecosystems under threat, how can we best act to conserve plant diversity?


Our scientists study how plants grow; they develop new ways to use plants and investigate the best ways to conserve plant diversity for the future.
