Palms and the CJB
The CJB has had a close relationship with the palm family since the origins of the conservatory, now going back almost 200 years. The morphological and taxonomic diversity of the palms is well represented, not only in the living collections of the garden, but also in the herbarium and the library, which contain palm specimens and publications of great historical and scientific value, recognized internationally.
In the last 7 years the scientific study of palms has intensified at our institution, giving rise to 6 botanical collecting expeditions in Africa and South America, the publication of more than 20 scientific articles and reports, as well as the supervision of 7 Master's projects in collaboration with the University of Geneva and other foreign universities. Many outreach and environmental education activities carried out by the CJB have highlighted this emblematic tropical family.
