General Information
Missouri Botanical Garden is pleased to offer its sixth annual Index Seminum. All seed is collected from naturally occurring populations. Species that are known weeds in disturbed areas in North America, known to be invasive to North America or other continents, and related species known to be invasive to North America or other continents have been excluded from the list. While we have made every effort to ensure that we are not distributing invasive or potentially invasive plants, selections should be made carefully with consideration of the environment in which the species will be grown.

We support the Convention on Biological Diversity. The seeds offered here are for the use of the common good in the areas of research and development of public gardens and plant collections. They should not be used for commercial profit. If publications result from the use of this material, we expect acknowledgement as the source of the material and an unsolicited reprint of any publication. Missouri Botanical Garden is a member of the International Plant Exchange Network (IPEN). IPEN membership allows for exchange of plant material with other IPEN members without bilateral agreements.

Non-IPEN members agree to the terms and conditions of the of the Living Material Supply agreement in Section Three of this form.

IPEN numbers are assigned to all plants that may be distributed. The IPEN number remains connected to the plant material and its derivatives through all generations to come. The IPEN number consists of the following:

1. Country of origin (two positions, abbreviation according to ISO 3166-1-alpha-2 (http://www.iso.org), "XX" is used for seeds of plants of non-wild origin).

2. Restrictions of transfer (one position, "1" if there exist a restriction, "0" if none).

3. Garden code, which can be found on the website of BGCI under "Garden Search".

4. Identification number (accession number of the specific garden. Example: 2004-149 or 03214, whatever the specific recording system of the gardens generates).

Geographical Data
Seeds listed below were collected from within four eco-regions of Missouri: the southeastern-most portion of the Mississippi River Hills, located north and east of St. Louis (accessions from Lincoln, Pike, and St. Louis Counties); the Central Irregular Plains, located across Northern Missouri (accession from Lewis County); the Mississippi Alluvial Plains located in the Missouri boot heal along the Mississippi River (accessions from Scott and Stoddard Counties); and the Ozark Highlands, located in south-central Missouri and northern Arkansas (all other accessions). In general, these four eco-regions are separated by the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers, which divide the rolling prairie lands of northern Missouri which were formed by glaciers, from the Ozark Plateau that was formed by uplift and erosion.
