Abstract:
INTRODUCTION

The University of British Columbia Botanical Garden is the oldest university botanical garden in Canada. It was established in 1916 under the Department of Biology and was essentially a teaching garden, but at the same time served an important role in the beautification of the new campus. In 1968 the university's board of governors designated a new 70-acre site for the construction of a new botanical garden. The challenge to design and develop this project was taken up by the Garden's former director, Dr. Roy L. Taylor.

Today the Garden has over 14,000 accessions, some 10,000 different plants and plays a major role in education and research, as well as in developing close ties with the community and the professional horticultural industry.
