Jardins botaniques, une manière de concilier science et éducation au travers d'une organisation spatiale

Abstract : Botanical gardens are very hard to define. Indeed, they can be very different depending on time, societies, geopolitical context and science progress. During the Middle Ages, Botanical gardens were used to produce food and medicinal plants. Then, the Renaissance turns them into medicine school annexes. Therefore, they became gardens of acclimatization for plants discovered in colonies. Nowadays, botanical gardens are multipurpose gardens. However, the analysis of these gardens’s history brought out two of their main function: the scientific and the educational one. Little by little, Botanical gardens have developed many ways to reconcile these two aspects. Montpellier’s and Bordeaux’s Botanical gardens, as well as the garden of Conservatoire botanique national de Brest, are three examples which show how Botanical gardens can be diversified.
