Hawaii Seed Bank

Project Managers: Michael B. Thomas and Casey Jones
The mission of the Hawaii Seed Bank is to collect, evaluate, preserve and provide a collection of genetic resources to secure the plant biological diversity of the Hawaiian Islands.

Species checklists are presented summarizing the storage behavior of Hawaiian native plants. A total of 377 taxa have been or are currently being studied in Hawaii. Currently, 141 species are reported as Orthodox, 11 likely Orthodox, 10 Short-Lived species, and 88 Freeze Sensitive. Species are known to be recalcitrant and Dessication-Sensitive include 12 species.

Tier 1 species targeted for collection and storage through the Hawaii-Millennium Seed Bank partnership program are presented. These species are primarily common native species recorded to be desiccation tolerant species.

Data presented below are from the work conducted by the Lyon Seed Conservation Laboratory (University of Hawaii), and the O`ahu Army Natural Resource Program (OANRP) and the National Center for Genetic Resources Preservation (NCGRP) data.
