From the smallest to the largest seeds in the world, rainforests contain an amazing array of seeds and fruit in a variety of colours, shapes, and sizes.
Collecting seed from rainforest plants has a number of challenges.
Depending on what we know about the biology of the species, seeds might be processed and deposited into the seedbank. Others might need to be tested for their response to drying before we can store them appropriately.
Rainforests are not naturally dry habitats and rainforest seeds are often not use to drying out. This can make seed storage difficult.
