"Certainly some of the plants that were cultivated in ancient times and have gone extinct or other plants once important to ecosystems which have disappeared would be very useful today if they could be brought back," said Elaine Solowey, a botanist at the Arava Institute for Environmental Studies in Israel.

Solowey resurrected the 2,000-year-old date palm that previously held the title of oldest regenerated seed.
Her palm seed, though, had been buried in a dry, cool area, a far cry from the S. stenophylla seeds' permafrost environment.
Regenerating seeds that have been frozen at 19 degrees Fahrenheit (-7 degrees Celsius) for so long could have major implications, said Solowey, who was not involved in the new study.

Dr. Elaine Solowey, director of the Center for Sustainable Agriculture at AIES and an expert in crops appropriate for arid lands, was very skeptical at the possibility of taking ancient seeds and producing something viable from them. With only six seeds, recovered by the Louis L. Borick Natural Medicine Research Center of the Hadassah Medical Organization from excavations at Masada in the 1960s, she set out to cultivate a Judean date palm.

Methuselah is actually a part of a larger project of Dr. Solowey's, and with this success she plans to create a center for the study of ancient, extinct, and endangered seeds. "We want to make sure that endangered plant species don't disappear from Israel's landscape," said Lehrer. "We are looking for good uses for native plants which are under threat," he added, emphasizing the medicinal qualities that are just the beginning of what is to be discovered about these Israeli plants.

Dr. Elaine Soloway, director of our Center for Sustainable Agriculture, returned from a 15-day trip to the United States, where she visited with family and advanced two exciting projects. First, at the highly regarded Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston, Elaine met with department heads and toured their labs, which are part of an enormous research facility "like a city inside a city," she said.

Second, Elaine visited the Bronx Botanical Garden at the request of the head of the garden. The exchanged "wish lists" for plants and Elaine has been invited back to lecture there next year.
