Acknowledgements

The Seed Identification Guide was developed by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), Saskatoon Laboratory, Seed Science and Technology Section (SSTS) with the collaboration of CFIA colleagues and other seed specialists identified below. The description, illustration and images of seed identification features were derived from the observation of the seed collection of the Canadian National Seed Herbarium.

Special thanks to the contributors of this tool: Jennifer Neudorf for the description of seed identification features and the development of Lucid Key for families; Angela Salzl for edit, review and support of the tool development; Janine Maruschak, the Section Head, for review and support the tool development; CFIA Plant and Biotechnology Risk Assessment Unit for providing species botany information and its distribution; Jo Jones for imaging seeds; Ken Allison for seed drawings; and CFIA Seed Section for general reviews. Also thanks Debbie Meyer of Plant Pest Diagnostics Branch, California Department of Food & Agriculture for review the family keys.

I am also thankful for the advice and training provided by the collaborators, Terence Walters, Julia Scher and Amanda Redford, the Center for Plant Health Science and Technology (CPHST) of the Plant Protection and Quarantine (PPQ) division of the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) within the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), and the Digital Identification Tools team of the Scientific Collaboration Working Group – Plant Health Quadrilaterals (Australia, New Zealand, United States of America, Canada).
