The cultivated plant Taxonomy Group

It is the mission of Hortax to further understanding of the classification and diversity of cultivated plants through education, communication and collaboration.

Among other things, Hortax publishes interpretive literature, circulates an e-newsletter, organises conferences, maintains an online information resource and is shortly to launch an academic journal.

Through Hortax everyone can share in the unending fascination that studying cultivated plants, in all their variety, can offer.
