Seed Science Forum 2020 – Seeking the views of the seed science community

The Australian Seed Bank Partnership is pleased to announce that we will hold a Seed Science Forum in April 2020, hosted by the Australian National Botanic Gardens, Canberra, with partner organisations, the Australian Grains Genebank and the Australian Network for Plant Conservation (with more to be announced). The forum will be open to national and international seed scientists and seed practitioners from conservation, restoration, forestry, agricultural and research sectors.
The Australian Seed Bank Partnership’s National Seed Science Forum was last held in 2016 at the Australian PlantBank, Australian Botanic Garden, Mt Annan. Following the 2016 forum we received overwhelming feedback that the seed science community would like to see the forum become a regular event. We are thrilled to be able to once again convene a forum with a strong focus on seed science and its applications.
We are seeking your input to assist us in developing a forum program that will be of greatest value to the diverse seed science community. Please feel free to forward this to your networks. The survey of 7 questions will be open until 3 March 2019, and should take no more than 5 minutes to complete:
