 Description  Plants + People shows the many fascinating ways in which we depend on plants. Based on Kew's unique Economic Botany Collection, it includes the products of traditional societies from the Amazon to Australia; the sophisticated artistry of Japanese papers and lacquerware; plant-based medicines like quinine and vincristine that helped revolutionize human healthcare; and examples of raw materials that make our music and feed, clothe and invigorate us.

The Plants + People exhibition, on display in the fully restored Museum No. 1 at Kew, reflects Kew's past and present roles in botanical research and provides an insight into why we need to conserve the world's planr resources.
