      Orriame -nets and the U.S. National Plant Germplasm System coordinated by 40 crop-specific Crop Germplasm Committees (CGCs), representing diverse users in academia, industry, and government. The Herbaceous Ornamental CGC and the Woody Landscape Plant CCC (Robbins et al.. ) are two CGCs of primary interest to IPPS members. Genetic diversity is a key component of stable agricultural production in a rapidly changing world. The genetic variation found in field crops, fruits, vegetables, ornamentals, other economically important plants, and their wild and weedy relatives is crucial for crop improvement and the development of new agricultural products. This diversity is found both in nature and in .
