Description

[ES] El Banco de Germoplasma de la URJC se fundó en 2008 y actualmente consta de 200 accesiones y 89 especies, aunque es una colección en continuo crecimiento. Está basado en la conservación de comunidades de plantas silvestres. Está compuesto por dos colecciones típicas del centro peninsular: Alta montaña (pastos psicroxerófilos) y Semiárida (estepas gipsófilas) y una colección representativa del género Lupinus. Todas las muestras se almacenan en tarros herméticamente cerrados a -18ºC.

  • Objetivo: El objetivo del banco es conservar ex situ una muestra representativa de toda la biodiversidad vegetal característica de un hábitat, haciendo énfasis en aquellos ecosistemas definidos como prioritarios por la Directiva de Hábitats. Además, se utiliza para almacenar material con fines investigadores y docentes.
  • Puntos clave/fuertes: Efectos del cambio global sobre ecosistemas de alta montaña y semiáridos

[EN] The Germplasm Bank of the URJC was created in 2008 and presently withholds 261 accessions and 103 species. It is based on the conservation of wild-plant communities. It consists of two subcollections corresponding to habitats typical of the center of the Iberian peninsula: high mountain (psicroxerophylous pastures) and semi-arid (gypsophylic steppes), a representative subcollection of genus Lupinus and other of genus Cheirolophus from Canary Islands. All accesions are stored in the freezer at -18ºC in Kilner jars with silicagel.

  • Main purpose: The aim of this bank is to conserve ex situ a representative sample of the plant biodiversity present in a habitat, putting an emphasis on those ecosystems identified as prioritary by the Habitats Directive. Moreover, it is used to store plant material for research and teaching purposes.

The collection was established in 2007 and ceased acquisitions in 2012.
