LMU maintains close links with the Botanical Garden München-Nymphenburg and the Botanische Staatssammlung München (State Botanical Collection in Munich). Our collaboration dates back to ca. 1820 and was initiated by the naturalist Carl Friedrich Philipp von Martius, the first Professor of Botany at LMU. Von Martius also headed the two above-named institutions. Today, Professor Gudrun Kadereit is Director of the Botanical Collection and Head of the Botanical Garden. She also holds the Chair of Systematics, Biodiversity and the Evolution of Plants.
