Hi guys,

To study the effects of the environmental change the world is currently experiencing, some scientists have collected a large amount of seeds all across the United States to store for 50 years. They hope that the project "Project Baseline" will show the evolutionary process of plants during environmental change. I think this is a really interesting project, although it would have been more interesting if they included plants experiencing heavy pollution or live in the ozone layer hole area.
