New York Botanical Garden scientists, postdoctoral researchers, Ph.D. candidates, research associates, highly-trained technical staff, interns, and volunteers work to explore, understand, document, conserve, and manage Earth’s plant, algal, and fungal diversity. Interrelated approaches promote multiple levels of discovery and rapid advancement of understanding. Systematics Geographic Area Programs.

Laboratory Research. With modern laboratories and state-of-the-art techniques such as DNA analysis, Garden scientists explore plants, algae, and fungi and their relationships at their most essential levels—pushing the boundaries of knowledge about life and leading to new discoveries.

Outreach Training and Science Education. With a renowned professional staff and unmatched scientific facilities, the Garden trains the finest young botanists possible in order to expand knowledge about plant diversity and accelerate the translation and sharing of that knowledge for the benefit of humankind.
