Heidelberg University Botanic Garden is a scientific institution at the Centre for Organismal Studies (COS) Heidelberg.
In particular, the garden is closely associated with the Biodiversity & Plant Systematics Department at COS. A large number of this department’s research projects rely on the Garden's collections, cultivation facilities, gardening expertise, and herbarium (HEID).
However, other Heidelberg-based scientists from various disciplines also use the Botanic Garden.
