Plant-based artifacts in the Missouri Botanical Garden's Biocultural Collection are tangible evidence of the ways that plants and people interact. They are a valuable resource for understanding humanity’s biocultural heritage, and for the conservation of nature itself. They are also a means of preserving traditional knowledge, documenting livelihoods, and showing the lasting influence of ethnobotany on the diversity of human cultures.

In Spring 2022, we will showcase the collections in the free talk series
Bioculture - Plants and People Interacting, supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities.
