Summary
Botanic Gardens are living plant museums, where plants have been arranged according to previous research and discovery in order to be used as a display for public appreciation and learning. Thus, more than ever, they can serve to improve the practice of botany, being able: (i) to drive the continuous exchange of ideas using the ‘old and new’ botany approach; (ii) to show the importance of the plant world in alleviating regional and global changes; (iii) to expand forward-thinking in science promotion. The Global Strategy of Plant Conservation (GSPC) has promoted global action in environment conser- vation and study. From the beginning, it has been adopted by Botanic Gardens Conservation International (BGCI) to function as a leitmotiv for botanic gardens best practice. In the present century, a new endeavour is required to facilitate the appeal of botany to younger generations. Links between taxonomic knowledge, molecular studies, information and communication technologies, and social sciences are urgently needed. Lisbon Botanic Garden has been working on these challenges for the past six years.
