- Preserving and Renewing the Environment
- Native Landscapes Preserving Diversity
- Preserving and Renewing the Environment, Prairie grasses found in native landscapes play an important role in providing clues into plants’ ability to respond to environmental stress that can enhance cutting-edge science and technology to improve agricultural productivity. St. Louis was once the home of tall grass prairies, stands of grasses that often grew taller than grown men. The grasses, grass prairies are a unique and complex ecosystem that protects the environment by providing rich

- Together We Can Help End Hunger and Improve the Environment,
With the birth of agriculture, human beings flourished. Today, the intimate balance between people, planet and plants is threatened. We must find a way to make sure we have enough food and energy for people while preserving a livable, sustainable environment now and for the future. At the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center we work, long-term damage to the environment and the planet. Like the Moonshot in the 1960s, or a Mars shot
