Abstract:

The Israel Plant Gene Bank (IGB) of the Agricultural Research Organization (ARO) is the national center in Israel to conserve the genetic resources of regional vegetation. The IGB is a physical repository for collected seeds for current and future uses and development, and is also part of the collection and conservation program for wild plant and landrace seeds from natural habitats all over Israel. The wealth and diversity of Land of Israel plant life is in danger due to habitat loss caused by intensive urbanization, infrastructure construction and the rapid transition to modern agriculture based on elite lines with extremely limited genetic diversity.
