The Botanical Garden of the National Academy of Science is responsible for plant collections in Armenia. It holds rich herbarium of different species and shrubs. The collection of Armenian flora includes around 200 species and provides a basis for its study, and the ecological interactions of species, in a relatively natural environment.
