Yale Environment 360 reports on our efforts to conserve the world’s plant genetic diversity needed to adapt our crops to #climatechange.

“There is a great urgency to safeguard crop diversity,” says Marie Haga, executive director of the Global Crop Diversity Trust, who notes that diversity is lost every day, both in the field as well as in many of the world’s plant gene banks. When money is tight, critical tasks fall by the wayside. Perhaps the most important is to periodically plant seeds and harvest new ones from those growths, given that over time seeds — even frozen ones — experience a deterioration of their genetic quality.
