Saving UK’s Seeds
British botanists are nearing their goal of saving the seeds of all UK plants. This is a testament to the ecological understanding that from seeds come life. What of their habitats and ecosystems? Are these going to be stored too? When most plants rarely exist in the wild and forests are fragmented to a portion of their pre-human extent, will humanity engineer a biosphere? Planetary well-being, human civilizations, economies and all animal life is completely and utterly dependent upon plants. I obviously have mixed feelings regarding seed banks.
