Hi all. I'm new here and apologize if I violiated any rules, but I was more concerned about this interesting bit of information that may help explain why such new projects such as the new Seed Bank have been established...
I look foward to contributing my knowledge on this and many subjects and look foward to contributing to our foundation of knowledge.
Best Regards
