The world’s first university Botanical Garden continues a tradition of research into plant species begun in 1545. The Botanical Garden as a site for conserving biodiversity. A fundamental role, considering that we know just 10% of the plant species present on the Earth, while it is estimated that hundreds of species become extinct every day without us ever knowing them.
The Biodiversity Garden is a phytogeographic journey from America to Africa, Asia and Europe, as far as Oceania. At the same time, it is also a journey through the planet’s biomes, from tropical to sub-humid, temperate and arid zones. To show people the wealth of biodiversity preserved in every corner of the Earth, from the richest to the poorest, from the most protected to the most threatened.
In the Biodiversity Garden, with this app, a smartphone or tablet will become a tool for visitors to interact with the environment and plants. This app will be used to increase the possibilities for communicating and disseminating botanical knowledge, a natural evolution of the way we recount the Botanical Garden’s five hundred years of scientific experience.
With this approach, the visit begins even before visitors reach the Garden and continues after they leave its gates.
