Systematical Garden

The kingdom of plants is composed of an uncountable number of different species. It is the task of the Systematic Botany to describe this manifoldness and present it clearly arranged to different groups. Comparing the biological characteristics of each individual plant makes it possible to comprise them into particular groups. By dividing these groups into subsidiary, sub-and superior-groups, a framework or system is built up in which each plant has its special place. It is in the Systematic Section of the Botanical Garden of Innsbruck where these plants are clearly arranged according to this framework. This part of the garden has been rebuilt in 1993 and covers now an area of 1000 m² . There are cultivated species out of many plant-families growing there, as far as the climatic conditions and the size of this section permits. The systematic section is open to the public.
