About this book

Published to accompany the third series of "A Year at Kew" (which will be called "A New Year At Kew"), this lavishly illustrated book takes a close look at the fascinating world of Kew Gardens, with a particular emphasis on its conservation work in Britain and abroad. The "World of Kew" covers all of Kews projects, from helping to solve crimes to developing plant remedies to fight HIV. Chapters are thematic, celebrating Kews past and future, and will feature many of the passionate characters from the series. As well as reintroducing endangered British species into the wild, Kew is developing a Millennium Seed Bank as part of a worldwide effort to safeguard 24,000 plant species against extinction, and working with botanic gardens and governments overseas to develop eco-tourism and businesses that use indigenous plants. The first two series of "A Year at Kew" established a loyal audience and gave viewers a glimpse behind-the-scenes at the worlds first botanic gardens. 2006 has been designated Kews official Heritage Year.
