Plants; a magnet for animals


The wide variety of plant species and habitats ensures a rich diversity of insects, such as solitary bees, bumblebees, wasps, and butterflies. This in turn attracts songbirds and bats. In our ice cellars many different species of bats hibernate, including the rare Geoffroy’s bat with its indented ears. The Botanic Garden is also home to many larger animals: foxes and mustelids, as well as majestic birds of prey such as owls and buzzards. 

This makes the Botanic Garden an excellent place for research and monitoring of biodiversity. Observation and monitoring of fauna in the area helps to reflect changes in the climate. With that information, we can then adjust the management.
