The Plant Information Management System (PIMS) of Chinese Union of Botanical Gardens (CUBG) has been developed. To brainstorm and optimize its functions and system variously, 44 staff members from 22 botanical gardens gathered together at Chongqing Nanshan Botanical Garden on October 9.

Up to now, 15 botanical gardens and institutions have participated in the test online. Seven other botanical gardens will also trial the system platform soon. After completion, the system is expected to be put into use by botanical gardens nationwide.

At the meeting, participants reported their trial experiences, and communicated the existing problems with the developers. Afterwards, they brainstormed to improve the management system.

This system, with CUBG as lead, aims to satisfy the botanical gardens in different types with easy but perfect operation.

Prof. Chen Jin, director of Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden (XTBG) and chairman of CUBG, summed up the meeting. He said that the brainstorm meeting will help to fully optimize the system.  “The system is expected to realize the real-time update of data. I’m looking forward to its official launch of the system as soon as possible” , said Chen Jin.

CUBG PIMS is a comprehensive service management system based on the plant data in botanical gardens, as well as integrating the management of business and personnel. By unified standards of data collection, these gardens will upload and refresh their plant information on PIMS, and they could also share and collect the public data in statistics according the shared protocols. The public could also visit the portal website (www.db.cubg.cn ) to learn more about the plant situation in China, based on the existing data on PIMS.
