La recherche scientifique aux CJB

From ecosystems to genes, the CJBG concentrates on the study of plants and fungi, as well as the biodiversity that they represent.
Our research is based on field exploration to collect plants and to study natural habitats. It is also conducted from the point of view of the laboratory, such as in population genetics, phylogeny, micro-morphology, GIS and remote detection. The use of our herbaria, which houses one of the largest collections of plants and fungi in the world, and of the library, is equally as important in our research and in our understanding of the biodiversity of the living world.
The results of these investigations are diffused to a large public through our scientific publications or databases that are accessible on-line. These resources allow our institution to play a key role in the management and conservation of the environment and to actively address the challenges connected to the loss of biodiversity in Switzerland or in the various different regions of the globe in which our scientists are active (e.g. Corsica, Madagascar, Ivory Coast, the Mediterranean, Paraguay, Brazil).

Our research is integrated in the activities of the Plant systematics and Biodiversity, run by Michelle Price and one of the 10 University laboratories in the Department of Botany and Plant Biology of the University of Geneva.
