Summary

In 1966, the first building established in the National Botanic Gardens was named in honour of Ellis Rowan, a wildflower painter. At that time it accommodated the original administration offices and the Herbarium. Later the horticultural research laboratory was added. It now houses the National Plant Photographic Index; the display, interpretive and public relations units of the Australian National Botanic Gardens (ANBG); the Fauna of Australia unit of Australian Biological Resources Study (ABRS), together with their graphics and illustration studio. The Australian Network for Plant Conservation (ANPC) also have their offices there.
