Located at the Australian Botanic Garden, Mount Annan, NSW, PlantBank is a secure seed repository and research facility for Australian plant species. There are currently almost 10,000 seed collections held from across Australia, representing over 4500 species. The primary focus of the seed collections is NSW species, which support living collection development across the RBG sites, as well as seed for research projects and restoration of native plant communities. The current seed program and collections were established in the mid 1980's and include major collections of Eucalyptus, Acacia, Fabaceae, Myrtaceae, Proteaceae and Asteraceae.
PlantBank actively contributes to recovery actions for threatened species, and is the leading facility for the ex situ conservation of NSW threatened species.
