The Svalbard (Doomsday) Global Seed Vault
This is the Noah’s Ark for seeds. The Svalbard Global Seed Vault is the world’s largest repository for duplicates of seeds that are conserved in genebanks. If a genebank loses seeds, back-up samples saved in the Seed Vault can be returned and seed collections can be restored. The presentation will explain why and how seeds are conserved in Svalbard.
Dates and locations to be announced.
