History of Botanical Garden,
There are approximately 1800 botanical gardens and arboreta’s in around 150 countries (almost temperate regions), around 550 of which are in Europe (150 of which are in Russia), 200 in North America, and a growing number in East Asia is. These gardens attract nearly 150 million visitors a year, so it is hardly surprising that many people have got their first exciting introduction to the plant garden in the wonders of the plant.
Historically, the botanical garden exchanged plants through the publication of seed lists (they were called Latin: Indus Semina in the 18th century). It was a means of transferring plants and information between the botanical garden. This system continues to this day, however, in recent days more attention has been given on the transmission of genetic piracy and aggressive species.
