Welcome to WESTPYR
The purpose of this website is to inform about the activities of WESTPYR, an ex situ conservation programme of Pyrenees-Cantabrian range plant diversity, specially the flora of the western Pyrenees. This programme has been developed by the Society of Sciences Aranzadi and the Millenium Seed Bank – Royal Botanic Gardens Kew.
WESTPYR is part of a wider project called CANTABROPYRENAICAE (http://nspainendemicflora.myspecies.info). We are working in the development of this project with Atlantic Botanic Garden of Gijon and Botanic Garden of Olarizu (Vitoria-Gasteiz, Basque Country).
Our website is currently under construction. Please come back soon.
