GERMPLASM BANK | INDEX SEMINUM

Our Index Seminum offers a catalogue of seeds and spores (or propagules) collected from the live plants collections of the Botanic Garden to cover the traditional activity of free exchange between botanical institutions worldwide. Our garden edited their first catalogue in 1862.

The offered samples are collected from plants cultivated under open pollination conditions, and thus note that hybridization is possible.

Our institution is committed to give support to the Global Strategy for Plant Conservation and, as well, is concerned about the compliance of regulations relative to the access and benefit-sharing provisions of the CBD through the Nagoya Protocol on "Access to Genetic Resources and the Fair and Equitable Sharing of Benefits Arising from their Utilization to the Convention on Biological Diversity". Therefore, the Botanical Garden only supply seeds and other plant material in accordance with the IPEN Code of Conduct for Botanic Gardens (www.bgci.org/resources/ipen).

Seeds offered in our Index Seminum are not available to private individuals or commercial parties. Our institution maintains plant material exchange only for non-commercial uses.

IPEN membership allows exchange with other IPEN members without bilateral agreement. Only IPEN members may order online or by email (bancgerm@uv.es).

Non-members of IPEN Network are required to sign a benefit-sharing agreement for non-commercial purposes according to the terms of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). The agreement, available in the PDF format of our Index Seminum, should be signed by botanical gardens authorized staff or by the head of the project or research line for scientific purposes.
