Review for CENTER FOR PLANT CONSERVATION INC, St Louis, MO, USA
The CPC is a global recognized and highly regarded leader in the field of ex situ, or off site plant conservation. Indeed, they have literally written the book on the subject, or, actually three of them with another in press. These books all finish with one or more appendixes that provide practical, pragmatic, and highly detailed and specific guidelines about how best to go about the various aspects of keeping endangered species alive.
In addition to their books, the bodies of which provide the scientific, strategic and policy underpinnings to the practical appendixes, the CPC serves as a de facto national network that strives to prevent extinction the the most endangered plants in the USA.
Indeed, the first plant species deemed to have been recovered enough to be taken off the Endangered Species List, Potentilla robbinsiana, was very much a direct consequence of the work by the New England Wildflower Society, a CPC participating Institution.
