The vast amounts of data held in Kew's collections and associated databases represent a huge, often untapped resource, providing evidence of changes in plant distribution and diversity over time and space.
Over the next five years, the Biodiversity Informatics and Spatial Analysis department will use the power of newly emerging computational techniques to edit, curate, organise and mine these data and to evaluate trends and patterns through time and space (geographical, meteorological and ecological) to enable a new level of use of the collections.
We are broadly organized across the following functional groups
Plant and Fungal Names Curation
Curating key global plant and fungal nomenclatural and taxonomic resources
Disseminating Kew’s plant and fungal data
Genetics and Bioinformatics
Whatever it is Joe is doing
Applying sophisticated spatial and analytical tools to greatly enhance our ability to address critical knowledge gaps
