Detailed Information:
University of British Columbia Botanical Garden and Centre for Plant Research has a dual role in conservation. First, it contributes to the knowledge underpinning biodiversity science and ecosystem conservation. Phylogenetic studies of biodiversity and studies of the variation patterns of rare and endangered taxa are part of that process. Secondly, the UBC Botanical Garden and Centre for Plant Research contributes to conservation by maintaining ex situ living material of wild-sourced material of rare plants.

Although the UBC Botanical Garden and Centre for Plant Research has an international (particularly Asian) remit, it is also active in Canadian conservation efforts. UBC Botanical Garden and Centre for Plant Research is a member of the Canadian Botanical Gardens Consortium for Biodiversity. This national initiative is a cooperative effort among Canada's major research-oriented botanical gardens to identify, study, preserve and restore Canadian rare plants.
