Since 1979 the Ligurian Amateurs Orchids Group (GLAO) has studied the acclimatization of alpine, Apennine and mountain flora in general in this botanical garden, with particular attention to the Ligurian one. Thanks to the reconstruction of different types of rocky habitats, it has been possible to host, together with species local and exotic floristic plants, including some endemisms, even several species belonging to the minor fauna, thus increasing the scientific and didactic interest of the complex.
Three rocky habitats (limestone, siliceous and serpentine) have been created in the garden, as well as a pond that hosts the aquatic and insectivorous species of the marsh areas.
