Knowledge of flora and habitats is the essential basis for conservation.

This mission relies on the skills of botanists, a veritable living encyclopedia capable of recognizing plants and vegetation, or phytosociologists who will study plant communities and their interactions with their environment. These passionate scientists contribute to creating the reference tools that are herbariums, atlases, taxonomic indexes, habitat repositories, essential tools for the action of the botanical conservatory on its territory.

To preserve a heritage in the long term, we must first learn to know and recognize it.
