Abstract
The Plant Germplasm Bank of the Technical University of Madrid (UPM) is an ex situ facility that, for the last forty years, has been devoted to the conservation of threaten Iberian flora and wild species of Brassicaceae, an important crop family in the Mediterranean basin. The main objective of this facility is the long-term conservation of plant germplasm but also to ensure the availability of the material to be used in conservation programs or research. The viability of samples of 14 Vulnerable (VU) Spanish species was evaluated after 32-34 years of storage; final germination percentages ranged from 90% to 55%. Currently, the Plant Germplasm Bank-UPM stores 23.7% of the threatened Spanish flora (objectives III and VIII). Besides, 1027 taxa of wild Brassicaceae are preserved (objective IX).
