RTBG logo  Germination database web page

In a first for an Australian Botanic Garden; the web page provides public access to a database of seed germination data directly from the RTBG website. Users can search by Family or Genus and download the results of seed germination tests as PDF files.
This page is the result of collaboration between the RTBG and Deparment of Environment, Parks, Heritage and the Arts Information Management, to make available on the RTBG website the results of the seed germination tests conducted as part of the Tasmanian Seed Centre at the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens.

This data base will be invaluable for people involved in the propagation of native species, from Land Care Groups involved in restoration ecology thought to the amateur gardener, and is made available based on the principle of open disclosure set out in the RTBG's Plant Conservation Policy.
