This weblog documents the activities of Pacific Agricultural Genetic Resources Network (PAPGREN), along with other information on plant genetic resources (PGR) in the Pacific.
The myriad varieties found within cultivated plants are fundamental to the present and future productivity of agriculture. PAPGREN, which is coordinated by the Land Resources Division of the Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC), helps Pacific countries and territories to conserve their crop genetic diversity sustainably, with technical assistance from the Bioversity International (BI) and support from NZAID and ACIAR.
SPC also hosts the Centre of Pacific Crops and Trees (CEPaCT). The CEPaCT maintains regional in vitro collections of crops important to the Pacific and carries out research on tissue culture technology. The CEPaCT Adviser is Dr Mary Taylor (MaryT@spc.int), the CEPaCT Curator is Ms Valerie Tuia (ValerieT@spc.int).

Acta Horticulturae: campus-wide online access
From : Acta Horticulturae
Acta Horticulturae update: New optional free campus-wide online access for institutional subscribers
From 2008 all Acta Horticulturae subscriptions will come with optional free online campus-wide acces to the complete Acta Horticulturae article archives available from http://www.blogger.com/www.actahort.org (currently 40.000+ full text articles). For those of you whose institution currently already subscribes to Acta Horticulturae note that by now your librarian will have received all the information (either directly from ISHS or through your subscription agent) on how to activate this extra service for your subscription in 2008. For those who do not yet subscribe this may well be the right moment to consider a subscription to Acta Horticulturae. Most of the details can be found online at www.ishs.org/subscriptions/ but do not hesitate to contact the ISHS Secretariat with any further questions you might have. Certainly also take this occasion to recommend Acta Horticulturae to your librarian who sure will be most positively impressed with the low subscription cost and the overall cost per article for Acta Horticulturae. The fact that ISHS is the world's leading independent organization of horticultural scientists is still your guarantee to get the best subscription value for money on the market. On top of this we do offer considerable discounts to subscribers who apply for Institutional Membership with ISHS (see http://www.blogger.com/www.ishs.org/members/ for further details).
