Global Seed Conservation Challenge Learning Modules

BGCI has created a suite of learning modules on seed conservation, essential for those working in seed banks or in botanic gardens with seed collection programmes. The modules below will take you step by step through the process of seed conservation from planning to collection to processing and storage. After every module there is a quick quiz to test your knowledge.

These resources are also available in Español, Français and Chinese [中国语文].
