ABSTRACT
The article offers information on the Botanic Gardens Conservation International's (BGCI) global survey of the critically endangered Magnoliaceae collections. It tells that BGCI has identified 2,604 Magnoliaceae collections from 219 institutions in 47 different countries. However, the collections include only 37 of the most endangered species which means that more than half of the species are no longer cultivated and face extinction.
