Readers may remember a post from about a year ago announcing with sadness the imminent demise of Kew’s Seed Information Database (SID).
Well, cheer up. It seems SID is back.
The Seed Information Database (SID) is now hosted by the Society for Ecological Restoration (SER) in collaboration with the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew (RBGK). SID is a compilation of seed biological trait data, with records derived from measurements and observations on seed collections held in Royal Botanic Garden Kew’s Millennium Seed Bank and from other unpublished and published sources, through donation or abstraction.
Good news for genebanks everywhere.
