A symposium on Australian alpine plant research, conservation and management was held at the Gardens on 12 June 2014. The symposium shared the results of the ARC study with researchers, government representatives, and industry and restoration practitioners. Other alpine researchers from around the country also shared their research. The day ended with a panel discussion of issues and themes raised during the symposium, as well as challenges and opportunities for ongoing research, conservation and management in the Australian alps. A report on the symposium was released on 21 October 2014 and is available for download.
The National Seed Bank can supply seed for approved research (not for profit) projects at other botanic gardens, universities and similar institutions by permit application. Seed is not supplied to private individuals.
Applications for seed of species listed as threatened under the EPBC Act are assessed separately under an EPBC permit application.
The ecological community of Alpine Sphagnum Bogs and Associated Fens is nationally listed as endangered and is threatened by a number of processes, such as wildfires which destroyed many bogs in the ACT and NSW in 2003. Bog communities provide a number of ecosystem services including breeding habitat for endangered Corroboree frogs, and water control and filtration at catchment sources. The plants growing in bogs and fens determine their structure and function; however, very little is known about their regeneration and reproduction. Seed germination is an important step in the life cycle of plants and the factors that drive germination in bog and fen communities are unknown and, therefore, of high research importance. This project aims to increase our understanding of the ecological drivers of seed germination in bogs and fens. With support from the ACT Government we are also ensuring that seeds of the species that form the endangered community are stored in conservation collections.
Many of the species that you see in the Gardens have been propagated from seed collected from the wild (in situ), and germinated in the National Seed Bank (ex situ). The provenance of all wild collected seed is comprehensively recorded and voucher specimens of the species are catalogued in the Australian National Herbarium.
The Australian National Botanic Gardens National Seed Bank has a range of national and local partners that help us to deliver plant conservation objectives. Our capacity to meet the aims of ex situ conservation is greatly enhanced by these organisations and the people we work with.
Staff at the National Seed Bank work individually and collaboratively with a range of partners on a number of special projects. Follow the links below to learn more about some of the current projects that we’re working on.
The National Seed Bank provides facilities for Greening Australia’s Seeds for Survival Project. This partnership was initiated following the 2003 Canberra bushfires to increase the diversity and availability of local native seeds to landholders and the ACT Government for regeneration.
The National Seed Bank consists of a fully equipped laboratory with four germination incubators, a drying room (15°C, 15% relative humidity), cleaning and packaging areas and two freezers (-21°C). The National Seed Bank is a vital ex situ conservation tool for preserving the diversity of Australian flora. Each seed holds all the genetic information needed to reproduce a plant. Seeds stored correctly in the National Seed Bank can remain viable for hundreds of years.
Within the Gardens there is a high chance of hybridisation because so many similar species grow in close proximity of each other. For this reason seed collected in the Gardens is not used or stored in the Gardens National Seed Bank. Only wild sourced seed is currently stored for conservation.
