Biodiversity conservation is a national priority in Indonesia as a part of the implementation of sustainable development. Both in-situ and ex-situ conservation should be practised so as to make certain that biodiversity can be conserved, studied and sustainably utilized. The Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI) and Ministry of Environment & Forestry (KLHK) are responsible for the conservation of biodiversity as the scientific authority and management authority, respectively. Several pathways of ex-situ conservation may be undertaken through restoration of degraded ecosystems, improvement of fallows, development of arboreta, botanical gardens (BG), city parks, and biodiversity parks, planting road-side trees and rehabilitation of degraded lands using indigenous species, particularly rare and protected species. Ex-situ conservation of plant species through the above-mentioned pathways will become increasingly important, as in-situ conservation is facing many constraints. Several sites in Wallacea have been designated as ex-situ conservation areas such as the Toraut Arboretum at Bogani Nani Warta Bone in North Sulawesi [proposed by the Wallacea Development Institute (WDI), and established by local government in 1994], and five new botanical gardens: Massenrempulu, Jompie, Minahasa, Pucak, and Kendari. This paper describes the roles of the floristic conservation pathways and outlines the development of the above-mentioned arboretum and botanical gardens as case examples.

Key words : arboretum, biodiversity parks, botanical gardens, indigenous, city parks, Sulawesi
