The Kew Bulletin is a quarterly peer-reviewed scientific journal on plant and fungal taxonomy and conservation published by Springer Science+Business Media on behalf of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. Articles on palynology, cytology, anatomy, phytogeography, and phytochemistry that relate to taxonomy are also included.[1][2]

The journal was established in 1887 as the Kew Bulletin of Miscellaneous Information by William Turner Thiselton-Dyer, then director of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.[3] It sought to facilitate communication between botanists at Kew and distant parts of the British Empire, and prioritised study of information of economic importance.[4]
