    Kew Gardens - The Future of Taxonomy

    Since we first learned how to point and speak, our ...

    Since we first learned how to point and speak, our knowledge of plants has constantly expanded. But there’s a problem - we keep this expanding data stored in botanical journals within academic libraries. So why isn’t there one place to go for anyone to access this collective knowledge? Maybe then we could speed up how we implement the endless benefits of plants around the world. Kew called on us to help explain a digital revolution taking place within their quiet walls. A small team of their dedicated staff are leading by example and digitising their data to a single online resource. Our job was to put some perspective on the scope of this endeavour. lonelyleap.com/casestudy/the-future-of-taxonomy/Cast: LONELYLEAPTags:
