A Carolinian Seed Strategy

Tuesday, October 20, 2020 - 9:15pm
What is a Seed Strategy? The goal is to scale-up a small amount of local, wild seed, so that we can pay it forward and grow our collective capacity to do high quality habitat restoration. Populations of wild plants established outside their natural habitat for conservation purposes are called ‘ex situ’ populations, but we sometimes refer to them simply as ‘captive’ populations of known wild origin. Seeds can be scaled up using traditional agronomic practices, and these ‘ex situ’ orchards may provide much more seed, without impacting the original wild population more than once.
