A Missouri Connection to the Pontifical Academy of Sciences

One member of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences and a co-author of the Climate Change paper is Dr. Peter Raven, the President Emeritus of the Missouri Botanical Garden. Dr. Raven is one of the world’s leading botanists. The Missouri Botanical Garden is more than a pretty garden; it retains scholars who conduct fieldwork around the globe, from working with governments in countries like Madagascar to protect sensitive forest ecologies to cooperating with the Global Strategy for Conservation (GSPC) to halt the loss of plant diversity.
