Remarkable plant collections from two anthropogenic seed banks in Ghent (prov. of Oost-Vlaanderen, Belgium). In 1994-1995 and 2001-2002, two demolition areas in the city of Ghent yielded a remarkable assemblage of exotic vascular plants. All species are obviously related to previous industrial, horticultural and/or military activities and germinated from long-buried persistent seed banks. The species lists reflect the well-known longevity of seeds of the Fabaceae and Malvaceae families. Fifteen adventitious taxa of various origins were new to Belgium.
