Seeds stored at the Millennium Seed Bank

Seed storage in the vault of the Millennium Seed Bank (MSB)at RBG Kew's Wakehurst site in West Sussex, UK, 2010. The Millennium Seed Bank Partnership is the largest ex situ plant conservation programme in the world. The focus is on global plant life faced with the threat of extinction and plants of most use for the future. The seeds saved are conserved in seed banks as an insurance against the risk of extinction in their native habitat
