FORUM, Native Seed 3 & 4 September 2009

A 'Native Seed Forum' is to be held at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Melbourne as part of the celebrations for the conclusion of the first phase of the Millennium Seed Bank Project in Australia. The dates for the forum are 3rd and 4th September 2009.

The aim of the forum is to deliver to a wider audience the results of nearly ten years of seed conservation work in Australia with help from the Millennium Seed Bank Project, Kew. The forum will also be used to launch 'Plant Germplasm Conservation in Australia' a new text for practitioners and researchers working in the field of ex situ plant conservation. The book is published in partnership with the Australian Plant Conservation Network and launched in time for Threatened Species day on Monday 7th September.
