Abstract

The Plant Collections Network, the new name for the North American Plant Collection Consortium, is a core program of the American Public Garden Association (APGA). Through this program, the APGA coordinates a continent-wide approach to plant germplasm preservation and promotes excellence in plant collections management. This paper briefly outlines the Quercus multisite collection, its goals and recent achievements.
