Australian Tree Seed Centre (ATSC)

ATSC is administered by CSIRO, and collects and supplies high quality seed of Australia's woody flora, with special emphasis on range wide provenance collections and lots from widely spaced individual trees for research purposes. The seed collecting program is influenced by the priorities set by the FAO Panel of Experts on Forest Gene Resources and client needs. Currently seed from more than 1200 species, mainly of Australian origin, is held in storage. Eucalyptus, Acacia, Casuarina, Grevillea and Melaleuca are well represented. Joint seed collection expeditions with interested parties are encouraged
