Updates for the third edition of the Germplasm Guidelines are going well, with reviewer comments recently addressed by chapter working groups. Thanks to all those involved in the review and writing process! External reviews will begin shortly. Production of the ‘Plant Treasures’ video series funded by The Ian Potter Foundation is underway, with producer Chantelle Doyle and videographer Michael Lawrence-Taylor engaged to help spread the key messages of the Germplasm Guidelines. The video series will include interviews with chapter authors and footage of ex situ conservation processes in action. Planning is also underway for the launch of the Guidelines at the virtual Australasian Seed Science Conference on 6-10 September 2021.
