A new DNA plant bank for Southwestern Europe and North African Flora.

The Servicio General de Herbario of the Universidad de Sevilla (S Spain) has recently created a DNA plant Bank to conserve the genetic diversity of Andalusian (SW Europe) and North African flora. These territories are particularly rich in plant species: about 4000 taxa occur in Andalusia and nearly 4500 in Morocco. The Herbarium contains about 300000 sheets and it is the third in important in Spain. So far, our DNA plant Bank (DNA Bank HER-SEV) contains more than 7000 samples obtained from the research activities of the botanists of the Universidad de Sevilla and it aims to grow significantly to become a world reference for the scientific community. The materials preserved in this bank could be used to establish plant species relationships, unravel evolutionary history of plant taxa and provide information on the genetic diversity of populations facing the conservation and management of threatened species.
