• Participate in the PSC citizen science project "Wo Samen fallen"

If a piece of uncovered ground is left to itself, plants begin to sprout even in the busiest of city streets. The city air carries seeds that land somewhere, germinate, and become a new plant.

The PSC citizen science project "Where Seeds Fall" will examine the survival chances of urban plant populations and their genetic diversity. You can be a Citizen Scientist too!

The goal is to document which plants are growing spontaneously in the city of Zurich and how they are influenced by the surrounding biodiversity. The more flowers in the vicinity, the more flowers reach your own garden.

If you want to participate email us at or come and visit our Scientifica stand in Zurich on 2-3 September 2017,
