Entire Continent’s Plants Saved From Extinction
17 May 2006
All the plants of an entire continent have been saved thanks to the efforts of Dr. Tim Rich. Nifty work by the botanist has ensured that Kew’s Millennium Seed Bank now holds seed collections from the entire vascular plant flora of Antarctica – safe and sound in its underground vaults at Wakehurst Place in West Sussex.
The task was made easier because, although the trip was long and arduous, there are just two species in question!
