Great Project Milestone! All seed collections from 1st year duplicated in the Millennium Seed Bank

Good news!
This week the last batch from the first MAVA Project collecting season arrived at the Millennium Seed Bank. This batch contained 25 collections of Sardinian plant species.

It is a great milestone for the project. In total 520 collections of 446 plant taxa have been duplicated in the MSB as a result of the first collecting season.

Now all the partners have started the second collecting season, and we are preparing a joint field trip in the first week in July to collect seeds in the Troodos area (Cyprus), within the Forest National Park and Natura 2000 site.  Watch this space!
