Laid out between 1858 and 1873, the Botanical Garden of the University of Lisbon hosts one of the largest collections of subtropical plants in Europe. The Garden promotes knowledge, innovation and research on plants and fungi, on their biodiversity, monitoring, conservation and sustainability. The Garden carries out intensive educational activities with schools. This key, created in collaboration with the European Project KeyToNature, is an interactive guide to a selection of 154 woody species out of the several hundreds grown in the garden. The guide, which will be available also on mobile devices such as PDAs and iPhones, will be used for organising different educational activities with schools, centered on the identification of plants.
