Ex-situ (or off-site) conservation is a means of preserving genetic materials outside of a plant’s natural habitat. Among the many methods of ex-situ conservation, the Society’s regional Seed Bank is a local example of an effort to preserve rare and endangered species. Many other plant materials can be stored this way, including rare heirloom vegetables. There are also other ways to store seeds. Join Seed Bank Coordinator Michael Piantedosi to discuss the many efforts to preserve given genotypes throughout the world and close to home.
