The Botanic Garden area in Rome (12 ha) presents different peculiarities: the plain area reflects the set-up of the historical garden of the Palazzo Corsini, and the area of the hill is characterised by tree Collections. Some Collections are regarded to be of higher importance, like bamboos, palms, conifers and succulents. In this way, the genetic resources could be preserved, assolving to the educational purpose, and used also in reintroduction projects. At this end, we are carrying out projects supporting ex situ conservation, identifying priority species for collections, such as the endangered ones, by Germoplasm Bank. The Botanic Garden publishes a periodic Index Seminum; actually there are a total of 1178 accessions in the Seed Bank.
