About Seed Banks

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/5094450.stm

A huge new seed bank is getting built. While I don't think it's a bad idea, I wonder if it's as good as it sounds.

If you've got seeds and you know what species they are and what region they're from (I suspect they don't have much better data than that, or they'd be talking about their cool database), how good are the odds of getting plants which can produce the next generation of seeds?
