We are proud to announce the launch of the third edition of ‘Plant Germplasm Conservation in Australia – strategies and guidelines for developing, managing and utilising ex situ collections’ (also known as the Germplasm Guidelines). The launch will be held online during the Australian Seed Science Conference. We’d also like to invite everyone to the Australian Academy of Science Fenner Conference on the Environment: Exceptional times, exceptional plants. This free, online event will be held during the Australian Seed Science Conference in September (note: you do not need to attend the entire conference to register for the Fenner Conference).
