Research is core to California Botanic Garden's mission.

CalBG researchers and graduate students are working in the critical fields of plant systematics and evolution. Scientists and students interface extensively with other programs at the California Botanic Garden, notably the Seed Conservation Program (with research scientists making regular contributions to the seed bank) and Living Collection. These last units are administered by the Horticulture Department.
