Building living plant collections to support conservation: a guide for public gardens

BGCI US, in partnership with the Montgomery Botanical Center, published a collections guide “Building living plant collections to support conservation”. The guide features work done by the Montgomery Botanical Center, including genetic evaluation of the Sinkhole Cycad.

This guide is designed to provide a general blueprint to help strategically develop conservation collections. Many endangered plants are considered exceptional species, which do not store well in seedbanks, and thus must rely on living collections for conservation.
