Date:3/10/2011

This release is available in French.

The Universit de Montral Biodiversity Centre is opening today on the grounds of the Botanical Garden. The new Centre, the result of a partnership between the University and the Botanical Garden and the Montral Insectarium, two Espace pour la vie (Montral Space for Life) institutions, boasts cutting-edge scientific facilities for research into biodiversity, its preservation and its promotion. The Centre will not only be home to invaluable natural collections and promote knowledge transfer among local and international researchers, but will also increase public awareness of the importance of biodiversity, key to the conservation of species and ecosystems.

"This new Centre is a sign of the value placed by our community on safeguarding our natural heritage. By bringing together so many committed individuals in one place, where they can share their expertise, creativity and innovation, Montral is becoming a true hub for biodiversity research," noted Montral Mayor Grald Tremblay.

"The UdeM Biodiversity Centre is a remarkable example of the benefits of the longstanding partnership between the Universit de Montral and the Botanical Garden. This initiative, founded on our common commitment to conservation, research and education, draws on the strengths of our institutions and is very open to the community," added Guy Breton, Rector of the Universit de Montral.

Charles-Mathieu Brunelle, Executive Director of the Nature Museums, emphasized that "the UdeM Biodiversity Centre is a strategic link in the Nature Museums' goal of positioning themselves as a Space for Life, committing themselves publicly and launching a daring creative and urban movement. Biodiversity and the underlying concept of interdependence are at the heart of the outreach, research, conservation and education mission shared by the Botani
