State of World’s Plants and Fungi 2020

Based in an unprecedented international collaboration bringing together 210 scientists from 97 institutions and 42 countries, the report State of World’s Plants and Fungi 2020 by Royal Botanic Gardens Kew takes an in-depth look at how we can protect and sustainably use the world's plants and fungi for the benefit of people and the planet. Plants and fungi are the building blocks of life on planet Earth. They have the potential to solve urgent problems that threaten human life, but these vital resources are being compromised by biodiversity loss. The document shows how now more than ever we need to explore solutions that plants, and fungi could provide.
