Use this template for a printable pocket response plan for plant collections management should a disaster occur. This document is NOT intended to be a substitute for a comprehensive emergency plan.

As living collections curators and managers, disaster preparedness was a major theme at the 2018 Plant Collections Symposium and something all botanic garden professionals need to develop to safeguard their living collections.
