The “New Royal Horticultural Society Dictionary of Gardening” (1999) points out that among the various kinds of organisations now known as botanical gardens are many public gardens with little scientific activity, and it cites a more abbreviated definition that was published by the World Wildlife Fund and IUCN when launching the ’’Botanic Gardens Conservation Strategy’’ in 1989: “A botanic garden is a garden containing scientifically ordered and maintained collections of plants, usually documented and labelled, and open to the public for the purposes of recreation, education and research. ” This has been further reduced by Botanic Gardens Conservation International to the following definition which “encompasses the spirit of a true botanic garden”: “A botanic garden is an institution holding documented collections of living plants for the purposes of scientific research, conservation, display and education. ”
