In order to address the subject of “Biodiversity in a changing world” at the Researchers’ Days 2018 (30 November – 1 December at the Rockhal in Belval) the National Museum of Natural History will focus on one hand on hybridization, as a driver or obstacle to biodiversity and on the other hand on fossils as archives of a changing world. 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.

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.
Au cours de leur travail de recherche, des chercheurs en biomédecine de l’Université du Luxembourg ont détecté du matériel de laboratoire contaminé. L'objectif de leur propre recherches était pourtant différent...
