Then it wasnt extinct.

For a species to be extinct all its members must be dead.
The seeds were alive, dormant in seed form, but still alive keeping the species alive.

Reminds me of that one plant the Romans used to eat as a contraceptive, it was apparently so effective the Romans caused it to go extinct.   
Only difference being there are no more seeds left, which sucks for us.

Were they 2000 years old in 1965, or in 2005 when they were planted? I need clarification because of my obsessive need for clarification!

I call ******** . If it's so damn rare, then why would they plant it in an unstable environment instead of recreating an artificial one? God knows how many diseases of our world today would kill that plant, weather notwithstanding.
