Duke Biology: Live Plant Collections 

The Live Plant Collections consist of over eight hundred unique species of plants from all over the world. Since the late 1800's, Duke Biology faculty have gathered these plant specimens from the wild and have created comprehensive collections of carnivorous plants, cycads, xeric, aquatic, tropical and temperate plants.  We preserve many rare and endangered species within our greenhouses. The teaching collection is primarily used to support educational objectives of undergraduate courses and laboratories within the Biology Department. Its plant collections serve as a educational resource for school groups and plant enthusiasts.
