Researchers’ Days 2018 : Biodiversity in a changing world. Hybridization as a driver or obstacle to biodiversity

In this first article we are presenting the topic of hybridization between plant species as a driver or obstacle to biodiversity and the science behind.

Uniting Europe’s 1.5 billion specimens – The National Museum of Natural History Luxembourg is part of a new research infrastructure of 115 museums

European Natural Science collections contain around 1.5 billion specimens representing an estimated 55 % of global collections and 80 % of the worlds bio- and geo-diversity. Data derived from these collections underpin countless innovations, including tens of thousands of scholarly publications, products critical to our bio-economy, databases, maps and descriptions of scientific observations.

Natural History institutions within Europe hold over 55 % of the worlds collections
