+ - Sweedish Doomsday Seed Bank

Submitted by millermiller
millermiller (666) writes "From the BBC: The Arctic vault will act as a back-up store for a global network of seed banks financially supported by the trust. Dr Fowler said that a proportion of the seeds housed at these banks would be deposited at Svalbard, which will act as a "living Fort Knox". Although the vault was designed to protect the specimens from catastrophic events, he added that it could also be used to replenish national seed banks."

I am more bored than you could ever possibly be. Go back to work.
