Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh

November 2014 The RBGE is actively involved in, and coordinates numerous in situ (in situ conservation) and ex situ conservation projects both in the UK and internationally. The three main cross-cutting themes of scientific work at the RBGE are: Scottish Biodiversity, Plants & Climate Change, and Conservation (Conservation biology). thumb left 300px Edinburgh's skyline as seen from "The Botanics" at Inverleith (File:Edinburgh from the Royal Botanic Garden.JPG) In addition to the RBGE's scientific activities the garden remains a popular destination for both tourists and locals. Locally known as "The Botanics", the garden is a popular place to go for a walk, particularly with young families. Entrance to the botanic garden is free, although a small entry charge exists for the glasshouses. During the year the garden hosts many events including live performances, guided tours and exhibitions. The RBGE is also an important centre for education, offering taught courses across all levels. In 2009, the John Hope Gateway was opened. John Hope (John Hope (botanist)) was the first Regius Keeper of RBGE. Living collection Nearly 273,000 individual plants are grown at the Botanics in Edinburgh or its three smaller satellite gardens (known as Regional Gardens) located in other parts of Scotland. These represent around 13,300 different species from all over the world, or about 4% of all known plant species. The RBGE Living Collection catalogue is available here and is updated nightly. Some notable collections at the botanic garden Edinburgh include: *Alpine Plants (Alpine plant) *Chinese Hillside *Cryptogamic Garden *The Glasshouses **Palmhouse ***Temperate Palms ***Tropical Palms **Orchids and Cycads **Ferns and Fossils **Plants and people (including Giant Water Lily (Victoria amazonica) pond) **Temperate lands **Rainforest Riches **Arid Lands **Montane tropical house (including Carnivorous plants) **Wet Tropical House *Peat Walls *The Queen Mother's (Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon) memorial garden. *Rock Garden *Scottish Heath Garden *Woodland Garden Herbarium The RBGE Herbarium (situated in a purpose built facility at the Edinburgh site) is considered a world-leading botanical collection, housing in excess of 3 million specimens. Prior to the formation of the Herbarium, plant collections tended to be the private property of the Regius Keeper. The Herbarium in its present form came with the fusion of the collections of the University of Edinburgh and the Botanical Society of Edinburgh in 1839-40. RBGE's Herbarium moved into its present, purpose-built home in 1964. Over the years, a large number of collections have been added, belonging to individuals such as R.K. Greville and John Hutton Balfour, and institutions including the Universities of Glasgow (University of Glasgow), St Andrews (University of St Andrews) and Hull (University of Hull). The most important historical collection is that of George Walker Arnott (George Arnott Walker-Arnott), which came with the University of Glasgow's foreign herbarium deposited on permanent loan in 1965. This collection contains specimens from all the major mid-19th century collectors, especially from India, North and South America, and South Africa, including type material of species described by ‘Hooker & Arnott'. From the early 20th century, collections have been made by members of staff. The approx 20% of the Herbarium that has been databased is searchable here. Library RBGE's Library is Scotland's national reference collection for specialist botanical and horticultural resources. Housing around 70,000 books and 150,000 periodicals the research library is one of the country's largest . It has been built up to support the specific subject fields researched and taught at RBGE - Garden staff and students are its main users, along with visiting researchers. However, as a national reference collection, the Library is also open to members of the public, either in person or by telephone or e-mail.

Because his tremendous work is often used over the internet and many foreign publications, the style of the illustrations he prepared is often referred to as ''herb gajlowski'', or ''Gajlesque Coat of Arms''. Apart from his scientific work on the history and details of the coats of arms, he is also the author of modern emblems adopted by, among others, city of Białystok and Podlaskie Voivodship. Life Born in the village of Babiki near Sokółka, Kozaczuk joined the army in 1944, during World War II, at Białystok.
