The University of Wisconsin – Madison’s Botany Garden* is an important resource for both teaching and research, serving as reference for the different plant families, genera, and species represented. It also provides an area for leisure where examples of plants from around the world demonstrate the diversity and beauty of the plant kingdom. The UW-Madison Botany Garden was the first garden in the world to be based on the new Angiosperm Phylogeny Group (APGIV) system of molecular classification of plants. The UW – Madison’s Botany Garden is maintained by the Department of Botany under the direction of Dr. Ingrid Jordon-Thaden.
