The first international "Fascination of Plants Day" (May 18th 2012) will be launched under the umbrella of the European Plant Science Organisation. The goal of this activity is to get as many people as possible around the world fascinated by plants and enthused about the importance of plant science. vifabio is supporting this campaign by collecting the most important internet sources together for you.
You will find more biological web resources in our Internet Guide - a catalogue of annotated and evaluated internet sites.
The Conservation Project aims at planting groves of endangered species of Cupressus. Some species are not endangered over their whole range, but several isolated populations are at risk because of the small number of trees on a limited surface. Since the 10 March 2009 the Cupressus Conservation Project is a non-profit organization. The project's web site provides photographs and reproductions of protologues for many species of Cupressus. ... [Information of the supplier, modified]
The native plants of California are unlike any other in the world. From the richly colored expanse of spring wildflowers in the desert to groves of Monterey cypress on the coast, California's wild gardens are immensely diverse and awe-inspiring in their beauty. They define the landscape and offer Californians a sense of place, pride and stability, and they provide habitat for endemic wildlife species that exist no place else on earth. Since 1965, CNPS has worked hard to protect California's native plant heritage and preserve it for future generations. CNPS actively promotes the use of science in land use and management decisions through our Online Rare Plant Inventory and essential reference book: Manual of California Vegetation, 2nd Edition, both of which are the most advanced resources available for identifying and managing critical habitat in California. We work closely with decision-makers, scientists, and local planners to advocate for well-informed and environmental friendly policies, regulations, and land management practices. Originally formed in 1965 in the east bay region, the California Native Plant Society (CNPS) is a statewide non-profit organization of amateurs and professionals with a common interest in California's native plants. Our nearly 10,000 members work to promote native plant appreciation, research, education, and conservation through our five statewide programs and 33 regional chapters in California. Through membership in CNPS, Californians of all walks of life are able to support and engage in opportunities to experience and learn about native plants and their habitats, gardening and landscaping with native plants, restoration of habitat areas, and conservation issues throughout the state. ...

Ziel von WIPs-De ist der Aufbau eines nationalen Schutzprogramms für 15 Wildpflanzenarten, für die Deutschland im Rahmen des Bundesprogramms „Biologische Vielfalt“ eine besondere Verantwortung übernommen hat. In dem Projektverbund der Botanischen Gärten Berlin-Dahlem, Karlsruhe, Osnabrück, Potsdam und Regensburg sowie der Pädagogischen Hochschule Karlsruhe werden drei bisher meist isoliert durchgeführte Erhaltungsstrategien verknüpft: deutschlandweite Sammlung von Samen und Sporen und deren Sicherung in Genbanken unter Tiefkühlbedingungen, Erhaltungs- und Vermehrungskulturen ausgewählter Populationen in Botanischen Gärten und Schutzmaßnahmen an natürlichen Standorten, also Wiederansiedelungen oder Stärkung der Populationen. Hinzu kommt die Aufbereitung der Themen für die schulische und außerschulische Umweltbildung. Die Verbundpartner arbeiten eng mit den zuständigen Naturschutzbehörden sowie Fachleuten in Naturschutzorganisationen, botanischen Vereinen und anderen Botanischen Gärten zusammen. Nur so kann der Erfolg und die Nachhaltigkeit des Projektes gewährleistet werden. ... [Information des Anbieters]
