In 2020 it will be thirty years ago that the first Clusius symposium was organized: The Authentic Garden. Philipp Franz Balthasar von Siebold (1796 – 1866) has been of particular importance for the Hortus botanicus Leiden, Leiden University, Naturalis Biodiversity Center, Leiden, and Japan Museum Siebold House. The jubilee year for the University, Hortus, Naturalis, and Siebold House is an excellent reason to dedicate a symposium to Siebold’s work and heritage.
