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. References
