The collection may take place over several days. Multiple maternal lines (30-50 individuals) should be targeted for each accession.
Lot numbers: Number will be assigned by Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden
Total: Total number of seeds in the collection of one species at one site
Active: 20% of the total number of seeds should be designated for the ‘active’ lot. These seeds are used for testing and distribution
Base: 40% of the total collected seeds should be designated for the ‘base’ lot.
Backup: 40% of the total collected seeds should be designated for the ‘backup’ lot.
100 weight: Weight of 100 seeds. For large maternal lines, this can be used to extrapolate total seed quanity by wieght.
Use formula =(weight * 100)/(100 weight)
