Botanical Gardens
The Jardín Botánico (Botanical Garden) was founded in 1959 by botanists Faustino Miranda and Manuel Ruíz Oronóz, with the support of Efrén del Pozo, a medical physiologist, who then served as Secretary General of UNAM.

The Botanical Garden of the Institute of Biology of the UNAM is the second oldest botanical garden of the country and has a national character for the diversity and representativeness of its collections. In addition to maintaining collections of live plants, the IB-UNAM Botanical Garden carries out dissemination and education activities, as well as research and conservation of Mexican plant diversity.
