Unformatted text preview: owledge past and current USDA-ARS National Plant Germplasm System (NPGS) staff members who collected, regenerated, stored and monitored the seed accessions used in this survey. Special thanks are also extended to USDAARS Genetic Resources Information Network (GRIN) staff, who made the provenance and germination data accessible. Dr Phillip Stanwood, a retired scientist of the NCGRP, is acknowledged for his foresight in initiating a large survey of seed longevities at different storage temperatures. Also, thanks are due to Dr Karen Koster (University of South Dakota) for providing helpful insights on an earlier version of the manuscript.
