Anna Saltmarsh: Seed Collecting for the Millennium Seed Bank
26/06/2020 @ 19:00 - 20:30
Kew’s Millennium Seed Bank preserves living material, in the form of seeds, from flowering plant species across the world with the aim of preventing extinctions, facilitating research and education, and enabling the restoration of threatened habitats.
Having previously worked at Kew Gardens and with a background in conservation, BWMG member Anna was delighted when the opportunity came up to contribute to a partnership between the Suffolk Wildlife Trust and the Millennium Seed Bank, collecting seeds from Suffolk’s woody species for the UK National Tree Seed Project.
Anna will talk about the aims and methods of seeds collection and banking, the reasons for the focus on the UK’s woody species and opportunities for the future.
