Germ Plasm

A germplasm is a collection of genetic resources for an organism. For plants, the germplasm may be stored as a seed collection or, for trees, in a nursery.

Germ Plasm is described in multiple online sources, as addition to our editors' articles, see section below for printable documents, Germ Plasm books and related discussion.
