Living plant collections
The Living plant collections keep three different collections:
The activities of the department include the installation and technical maintenance of the collections, especially the search for collection plants, the scientific maintenance (inventories, taxonomic checks, documentation) and the educational work with labeling, information panels, guided tours and training activities.
The living plant collections invite to multiple thematic visits; for instance, at the Kirchberg arboretum most of the native tree and shrub species are presented at one site. The plant labels showing the names, family and distribution area help the visitor to explore native and foreign plants.
