Citizens, conservation and climate change
Botanical gardens invite citizens to explore the effects of climate change on plants
Biologists and botanists from the universities of Berlin, Halle, Jena and Leipzig, as well as the German Centre for Integrative Biodiversity Research (iDiv) and the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ) invite citizens to participate in scientific research. In the "Plant ClimateCulture!" project, they can help to record the effects of climate change in cities by observing plants in their own and in the botanical gardens of the participating cities. The project results also contribute to making cities more climate-adapted and thus more sustainable and attractive to live in. Insights into the project and a lot of background information will be provided during a tour of the Botanical Garden of the University of Leipzig (Linnéstraße 1) on 20 March.
