The Florilegium: Rainforest Species at Risk exhibition showcases contemporary botanical paintings of rainforest species by artists from The Florilegium Society at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Sydney and illustrations by the Botanic Gardens scientific illustrators. The trees painted by the Florilegium artists for the exhibition include the rare, the common and the overlooked. All are at risk from habitat loss, climate change or pathogens such as myrtle rust, the silent killer of many Australian species. They highlight the work of the Botanic Gardens and the Australian Institute of Botanical Science, specifically its new Research Centre for Ecosystem Resilience (ReCER) lab.

The exhibition is open 10am–4pm daily 5 April–5 May 2024 at The Garden Gallery, Robert Brown Building.
