How many seeds can I take from a single individual if only a few plants have available seed?
Only a few plants in a population have seed available for collection. Can I take all of the seed from a single plant or should I only collect 10% of the seed from that plant?
It may also depend what you specified in your permit. Ideally take no more than 10% from an individual plant. But if this is a very rare plant (less than 50 individuals in population) with imminent extirpation it may be appropriate to collect as much seed as possible as “emergency rescue.”
