Ecological-Botanical Garden of the University of Bayreuth
The Ökologisch-Botanischer Garten der Universität Bayreuth (16 hectares) is a botanical garden maintained by the University of Bayreuth. It is located at Universitätsstraße 30, Bayreuth, Bavaria, Germany, and open daily except Saturday.
The garden was founded in 1978 with a focus on ecology and environmental field research and teaching. It now contains over 10,000 plant species from around the world, organized into four major sections:
- Crop garden (1 hectare)
- Ecology experimental plots (8 hectares) with lysimeter and groundwater basins.
- Greenhouses (about 8000 m² total) containing woodland and grass plants, aquarium plants, succulents, and plants of tropical mountains and cloud forests.
- Geographic sections - plants from the Americas, Asia, and Europe.
The university also maintains a herbarium, established in 2001, which contains approximately 25,000 documents focusing on seed plants, but also with several thousand cryptogams, especially mosses, as well as a seed collection and library.
