Urban conservation is emerging as an integrative discipline that explores cities, biodiversity, people and their environment. However, the role that biodiversity plays in people's life has rarely been investigated. In this thesis, I explored the people-biodiversity interaction in small public gardens in Paris (France). I found that gardens can host rich biodiversity, which can be enhanced by certain management practices. However, while people were highly interested in discovering this diversity and related it to their well-being, they demonstrated poor capabilities to experience this diversity and in fact did not notice it. This highlights a people-biodiversity paradox, which could be related to the extinction of experience. The separation of people from nature in cities modifies people's relation with biodiversity by limiting abilities to experience the quality of nature. Participating in conservation education programs can help avert this extinction of experience locally
