What we call the botanical garden of Rio de Janeiro is called by those who work there the arboretum. The research institution is the graduate school of tropical biology.

The Botanical Gardens in Rio are a credit to those that had the forethought to create them hundreds of years ago. Teaming with wildlife from Monkeys to Toucans and an abundance of plant life species the Gardens are well worth a visit and provide a shaded environment to walk around on hot Rio days.
