    I’m currently working on an analysis of National Park policy to determine if improvements could be made to greater facilitate native plant conservation through seed banking. I know of several examples where issues of ownership of seed collected from parks, public disclosure of seed collection locations and/or the theoretical potential for commercialization of progeny have prevented conservationists from collecting and banking seed from parks.  I’d like to document how frequently park policy represents a barrier. Please share any examples of issues you have encountered when trying to conduct conservation collections from National Parks.

    Thank you!
