MetadataShow full item record
The Botanical Garden in Oslo has a collection of more than 6.600 different plant species from around the world. A large part of these plants are endangered and preserved outside of their natural environment (ex situ). Some are placed in the existing greenhouses,Victoriahuset and Palmehuset, but most of the plants that need spesial care are placed in the working greenhouses where the the research and preservation work is happening. The research department is an importaint part of the garden in Oslo, but unfortunatly the spaces today appear as temporary and neglected. The department is placed in the north side of the garden, where it is cut off from the rest of the infrastructure with fences and smaller buildings, the buildings are secluded even though there are daily activities between the research department and the rest of the garden.
