International Center for Tropical Botany

Established as a collaboration between Florida International University and the National Tropical Botanic Garden, we’re providing research-based knowledge and tools to discover, preserve and sustainably use tropical plants while fostering programs to educate future generations.


Our interdisciplinary faculty study tropical plants and the resources they provide. These unique partnerships allow international collaborations that advance critical interdisciplinary research on pressing global issues.


Integrating Research & Education

We’re working on innovative solutions to conserve tropical habitats and communicate the importance of tropical diversity to the public.
