Morisia   About Us

The Centre for Biodiversity Conservation (CCB) is part in the Department of Botany at the University of Cagliari. The CCB was born to study, manage and preserve plant diversity in Sardinia. The Bank of Sardinian Germoplasm (BG-Sar), the Index Seminum, the biodiversity rock garden and the experimental fields are part of CCB.

The Centre's main focus is to preserve the highest number of sardinian endemic taxa and those of phytogeographical interest, it also collect species of Mediterranean insular ecosystems and western Mediterranean. They are stored as seeds or spore, plants in vase and also in the rock areas for the ex situ conservation.

CCB also aim of studying from taxonomical, ecological and biosystematic point of view threatened species and suggests most suitable strategies for their habitat conservation.
Common research projects and programs of scientific divulgation are carried out whit other institutions.

In the last years new projects on biodiversity conservation have set up: two for protection of threatened species in Cagliari's province and another one for study flora diversity in western Mediterranean islands. Project are carried out with Cagliari's local Administration and the Botanical Garden of Valencia. A protocol agreement have signed with the University of Valencia for didactic and scientific cooperation for the 2004-2006. Moreover projects and cooperations are carried out with other public institutes and research agencies .
