In the spotlight

Meise Botanic Garden is an internationally renowned centre of excellence for plant diversity research, conservation, and documentation. Our mission is “Building a sustainable future through discovery, research, and conservation of plants”.

With a living collection of 18,000 plant species, a herbarium with 4 million preserved specimens, and an extensive archive and botanical library, we are among the largest botanic gardens in the world.

Our science centres on collection-based research of plant diversity, evolution, ecology, and conservation. We study a wide range of taxonomic groups, including plants, algae, fungi, and lichens from Europe, Central Africa, Antarctica, and other parts of the world.

Meise Botanic Garden is dedicated to sharing its knowledge on plants and their environment with the research community, students, and the public.
