About this book

Language: English

Ljubljana hosted the European Consortium of Botanical Gardens in 2016. Since 2016 was the year of the Green Capital, the theme of the symposium, which was organized for the second time at the consortium, already offered itself. In Europe, there are growing trends in recognizing the remnants of nature inside cities, in order to give them greater importance. Ljubljana maintains this to a great extent, which is shown by historical data, so thinking about this was interesting and very fruitful. There were contributions from various authors who talked about various topics related to autochthonous (i.e. indigenous) plants in cities. This suggests that botanical gardens are very open institutions and they also operate over their fences. Not only did botanical gardens those have various exotic plants in their collections in the past, they always took care of the domestic flora. The Ljubljana Botanical Garden even had this name at the beginning – the Garden of Homeland Flora, and this tradition continues in the garden today. At the same time, this is the history of many botanical gardens throughout Europe. How important plants are is often realized only when there is no room for them and people start feeling they don't see green spaces anymore. However, people have kept these instincts for plants everywhere, and gardens, whichare mentioned in all the world's religions as some beautiful paradise, were originally able to be fitted into even impossible places. We can see this in nearby Venice, and many other places in the Mediterranean.
