Because of their enjoyment of, and interest in, the plant world, botanists, plant lovers, and friends of nature of all ages and professions have amalgamated in the Botanical Association for Nature Protection in Hesse (BNVH). We put our collective knowledge to the service of nature protection and particularly the protection of the plant world. In 1986 the BVNH was recognised as a Hessian nature protection association as defined in §29 of the Federal Nature Conservancy Act thereby obtaining the right (amongst others) to bring attention to the needs of nature protection in public planning, particularly from a botanical viewpoint. We arrange excursions and lectures in which you learn not only botanical and natural history facts, but also make contact with other people. From our membership list you can find out whether, or where, like-minded people live in your vicinity. Our journal Botanik und Naturschutz in Hessen contains contributions with useful facts and ideas for interested plant friends. You will find plant-sociological and ecological articles as well as floristic announcements, book reviews, literature reports and society news. ... [Information of the supplier, translated]
Locate plant species in cultivation around the world using our unique Plant Search. This database is compiled from lists of living collections submitted to BGCI by the world's botanic gardens.

You may have to query more than once as this search works on the 'AND' principle i.e. medicinal and CITES listed. It is BGCI's intention to keep adding to these lists of conservation interest. ...
