An Assessment of Native Seed Needs and the Capacity for Their Supply presented by Kay Havens, Chicago Botanic Garden
- A 2023 report from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine says the insufficient supply of seeds from native plants is a major barrier to ecological restoration and other revegetation projects across the United States.
