Research & education

Research has always been at the heart of A. Borza Botanic Garden activities. Thus, ever since its beginnings, this institution became one of the most important national and regional centres for botanic studies in all their complexity.
The herbarium of the University
A herbarium is a collection of plants that are systematically stored, catalogued, and arranged for scientific study. Such a collection is assembled over time by a process involving pressing and drying plants in paper sheets so that most of the living plant features remain visible on dry specimens.
Higher education
As a subunit of Babeş-Bolyai University, A. Borza Botanic Garden provides all logistical and scientific support in line with the university’s educational offer for systematic botany, floristics, vegetation, and plants, fungi, and algae diversity.
