They represent different types of Botanic Gardens (federal, state, public university, private) as well as different collection sizes (from less than 400 species in a specialized university garden to more than 25.000 species in the Austrian Federal Gardens).
One aim of the ABGW is to coordinate and optimize seed exchange and conservation programs (incl. seed banking) in accord with CBD-regulations incl. ABS issues and in line with Target 8 of the Global Strategy for Plant Conservation of the CBD, e.g. by looking into seed collection activities.
