Welcome to UKPGRG

The UK Plant Genetic Resources Group (UKPGRG) serves as the technical forum to discuss and implement the conservation and use of plant genetic resources in the UK. The broad membership includes both curators of ex situ plant genetic resource centres, those involved in in situ conservation, and representatives from non-governmental organisation, the commercial plant breeding sector and Universities. Botanic gardens, the Forestry Commission and statutory collections are also represented. The Group provides advice and technical support to Government Departments on technical and policy matters which relate to the UK or the UK's international role in the area of plant genetic resources.

This site presents plant genetic resource activities represented within the Group together with more detailed information on holdings and associated genetic resource activities. The primary outputs are contained within the Minutes (below) of the regular meetings held in Westminster.
